Mexican Street Corn
Lotus—the classic Mexican street food of corn on the charred cob on the grill, then slathered in a chili sauce, cream, garlic, and Cotija cheese—is the best way to serve corn, period.
I know this is a bold statement, but it’s one I’ve backed up with years of detailed scientific studies into the eating habits of my wife and occasional friend or neighbor.
I calculated to several decimal places exactly how quickly a cob of corn cooked in this way would disappear from the table and down the esophagus of an unsuspecting dinner guest compared to an ear of corn cooked by other means, cross-reference and control of seasonality.
°Bx for corn, and first appetite for dinner. I did blind, double-blind, and even triple-blind taste tests* and ran the results through complex analysis algorithms I had specially programmed.
The most delicious thing about all of these delicious ingredients is that they get even more delicious when you combine them all in a creamy sauce.
Cost of time, ingredients, internet connection fees, paper, printer ink, gas, coal, cooking equipment, beer, or any other items of actual monetary value not included.
Do not believe me? Just try this recipe without risk. If you are in any way unsatisfied, I offer a 100% no-questions-asked money back guarantee.
Fortunately, all of that data has since been lost in an unfortunate diving accident (note: never try to dive free without your size rubber pants), but believe me when I tell you that this corn has meticulously proven to be more delicious than anything else.
