Finally Elote

Since I was shut out in TJ looking for my elote. I decided to come home and make my own. It sounds strange but it is seriously yummy. Try it!

Grill a corn on the BBQ till golden. Spread with a thin later of mayo. Sprinkle Cotija Cheese on it. Light squeeze of lime.

OMG!?! Heaven.

OK now that I'm making you go out and buy Cotija Cheese (I use the Cacique brand) here's what else can you do with it:

Sprinkle it on refried beans, soups, salads, and mix it in my rockin guacamole.

Shelly's Guacamole

2 large California Avocados (I use Hass)
1 medium Tomato, seeded and chopped
juice of half a Lime
3 Tablespoons Cotija Cheese, crumbled
3 Tablespoons Cilantro, chopped
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly Ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon (or more to taste) Hot Sauce (I use Cholula)

Scoop the flesh out of the avocados into a bowl. Mash avocado till partially mashed but still some chunks. Add remaining ingredients. Mix well.

Yes I remember. It was a Cacique brand sleep shorts I turned into a tote bag lining :)

It's a pretty common Mexican cheese brand out here.

There was, for about 1/2 a year, a restaurant by me which specialized in grilled corn. They got me to try elote loco and I was HOOKED. I still don't trust the street vendors in my area but, my gawd, how can something which sound so disgusting be SO good?!?!?

Glad to know you can eat it after RNY. I can't really do corn now, with my lapband, but I'm hoping to be revised to sleeve by fall so maybe I can have some by the end of the year!
