And don’t forget corn-on-the-cob! Each juicy bite, screams, “Summer is here!” Have you ever had grilled corn-on-the-cob, otherwise known as Mexican street corn? Street corn is a fabulous way to take your backyard BBQ fare up a notch. It is a perfect side dish for any summer meal and will go great with your watermelon and potato salad.
Street corn is a traditional Mexican dish known as “elote.”
The elotero, or street corn vendor, is one of the most popular people in many Mexican neighborhoods; as he brings his cart filled with steaming, fresh corn to villages and neighborhoods. People wait their turn, patiently salivating, as the elotero bathes the corn in a mayo/butter mixture and adds his specialty spices.
While we can’t peddle to your door with our street corn cart, we can make this delicious side dish a tradition at every summer BBQ with delivery to your door!
Ori’Zaba’s has channeled the traditional street corn taste into our version; we use white corn, slathered in mayo and butter then sprinkled with scratch made chili powder and cotija cheese.
We guarantee you will be transported to Old World Mexico when you bite into this traditional dish. Order for pickup or delivery and make it a mainstay at your BBQ’s this summer; your friends and family will thank you!
