mexican street corn


Mexican street corn is one of my favorite foods.

We have spent a lot of time at ballparks.  We do love the sport but we also LOVE ballpark food. Ballpark food has come a long way over the past 20 years with many parks serving food worthy enough to be served in fine restaurants.

Major league baseball games opened up a whole new world of ballpark food for us. To be honest, we would head straight for the elote right whenever we went to Minute Maid Park. Since we can’t go to the ballpark everyday, we finally came up with our own version of Mexican street corn. This corn is salty, spicy, creamy, cheesy and fresh! Enjoy!
