My lunch today: corn on the cob with butter, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, and tapatio sauce. Parmesan cheese is a convenient substitute for Mexican grated cotija cheese. This tasty and popular street food is a big favorite at our family barbeques all summer long. The sweet white corn is such a treat all by itself. If you're not a big fan of mayonnaise, try it with lime and chile powder.
Arranging the ears of corn upright in my tamal steamer I was able to steam 20 at once. Split in half, they go a long way as an appetizer while all of the tri-tip and chicken are grilling away. What's your favorite summer food?
