Roasted Elote Snack

This is a quick roasted, corn snack. Its based on the corn on the cob snack you could get from the Mexican carts in the 26th street area in Chicago. I recently saw a few carts by my kids' school when picking them up. That reminded me of how much I love this snack. You could eat this right off the cob but when you have a 6 & 9 year old, you want to make it as easy as possible for them.


3 cobs of Corn (or 1 can of Corn)
Butter
Mayonnaise
Feta Cheese (or Parmesan Cheese)

1. Slice off Corn Kernels of their cobs.
2. Saute Kernels in a pan of Butter.
3. Brown Kernels until they are golden brown. This will bring the sweetness out of the corn.
4. Now your ready to plate up. Layer the Corn Kernels on the bottom, about 3 spoonfuls of Mayo on top and sprinkle Feta Cheese to finish the plate.
Originally the Elote snacks were topped on with Parmesan Cheese and a bit of chili flakes. I keep it within the realm of what my kids will eat so Feta it is!
