Eloté!


I've blogged the recipe to this before, so I won't repeat it... but it's definitely become my favorite way to have corn on the cob (not truly in season here yet, but it was hard to resist). I only wish I had either a grill or a regular broiler... mine is the ancient drawer at the bottom of the oven style that is fairly awkward to use... since it would make tending the ears during browning less onerous. I've come to believe there's really no reason to put the ears back in after you've slathered them with sauce... as long as you get them right from under the broiler... residual heat will cook it fine. I like a little sprinkle of chile powder to finish as you serve.

I think my food photography might have improved since that original post. Yowsa.
