Elotes Locos

What Elotes Locos Are.

Hey everyone! Hope you guys are all staying cool during this heat wave ! We've been in triple digits for about a week now, it has been very hot!  What has everyone been doing to stay cool?  We've been in the pool almost everyday even thought it pretty much feels like bath water now.

Over the weekend my father gave us a bunch of fresh sweet corn from a neighbors farm.  The heat was going to ruin the corn so the neighbor had too much left over and needed people to come pick it.  So naturally we had to make elotes locos, translated as crazy corn in English, out of them.  There is a picture of the elotes locos we made up at the top (pardon my kids pirate Legos in the picture!).  And here is a picture of my son eating the corn down below.
Elotes locos are basically just corn covered in any number of toppings, the most common being mayonnaise, ketchup, chili powder, cuajada fresca, and cilantro, but you can literally coat the corn with anything.  You usually see elotes locos at carnivals, street fairs, and other fun outdoor events.  I love finding elotes locos at hispanic heritage festivals, which you can read about on my post here: National Hispanic Heritage Month September 15-October 15.
My kids love all things corn, whether it's elotes locos, atol de elote, or tameles de elote.  You can view my other recipes for corn here:  Atol de Elote, Tamales de Elote. What is your favorite thing to do with corn when you buy it? Comment and let me know!    

Buen Provecho!  If you liked this post, please pin it,  (hover over my images to see a big red P button pop up that you can click to pin it to Pinterest), so that others can find it also. Thank you!!
