VIBES: JAY Z “THIS LIFE FOREVER”
Elote. Aka Everything good in life. A good friend put me onto this at Cafe Habana in NYC and I’ve been hooked ever since.
ELOTE (MEXICAN STREET CORN)
-4 Ears of fresh corn on the cob, cleaned and shucked
-a few tbsp of mayo
-1/4 – 1/2 cup of cotija cheese, crumbled
-one lime quartered
-a pinch of cayenne pepper
Clean and shuck the ears of corn. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high heat. If using a grill pan cover the corn with a lid to steam it a bit. Grill corn until blackened and blistering on all sides. (if grilling indoors, once its cooked through, you can also hold the corn over the open flame with metal tongs, to speed up the blackening process) remove grilled corn from heat. Spread a thin layer of mayo over the corn. Roll in cotija cheese and then sprinkle with cayenne pepper. Squeeze lime over the corn and serve immediately.
