Elotes for #SundaySupper


Summer’s Best Potluck Dishes
Memorial Day kicks off summer. Some kids are already out of school; mine aren't...not quite yet. But summer means cookouts on the beach and lots of fun, casual potlucks. Often my husband will drag our lil' grill out to the beach and friends will just bring whatever they want to throw on the grill and a dish to share.


Today the Sunday Supper Movement tastemakers are sharing their BEST recipes for summer gatherings! T.R. Crumbley of Gluten Free Crumbley is hosting.

My Offering
I decided to share a recipe for elotes - roasted ears of corn, smeared with butter, topped with cheese (sometimes!), salt, chili powder, and a squeeze of lime juice. My favorite part about this recipe - besides devouring it - is that I roast them in their husks so there is virtually no prep. Then, where ever I am going to serve them, I just quickly heat them on the grill and the husks stay on as a "handle" of sorts.

Ingredients serves 6

  • 6 ears corn on the cob, in their husks 
  • butter
  • salt
  • chili powder
  • limes, cut into wedges

Procedure 

Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse ears and place corn cobs on a baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes.


When you're ready to serve, peel back the husks and remove the silk.


Wrap the husks near the base of the cob and tie in a knot.


Char the corn on a hot grill and serve immediately with the butter, salt, chili powder and lime cut into wedges.

    1. SO funny that you say that. I almost didn't include it because I never put "devoured" photos up. But there was something that appealed to me with the cobs and the tied husks. Now I'm glad I posted it!
