Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elotes)
If you want the best of Mexican snacks, then you must try some elotes. This popular street food in Mexico is often served at home but you can try it either way. Either as lote; a dish made up of cooked sweet corn smothered in a spicy blend of mayonnaise, crema, chili powder and finally sprinkled with cheese. Or, try the more famous corn on a cob or stick which you prepare by either boiling or roasting. You’ll then dunk the corn in mayonnaise, crema, spices, then roll it in crumbled cheese… enjoy!
Mexican potatoes wedges
This is a light and extremely yummy Mexican treat. Crunchy potato wedges go with any meal and can be a filling snack on their own. For that extra crunchy outside and fluffy inside, then you can boil, steam or microwave the potatoes until they are almost tender. Go on and arrange the wedges in a single layer on a roasting pan after patting them dry, drizzle with some cooking or Olive oil and roast at 200°C until golden and crunchy. Serve with a spicy dip and munch away!
