1 (12 ounce) package steam in the bag frozen corn
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste

Prepare the corn according to package directions.  In large saucepan, combine all ingredients. Mix well. Cook over medium heat until cooked through.

This is my new favorite corn dish!  It is creamy, with just a little heat from the cayenne pepper. It is also super quick to make.

When I was in Chihuahua, Mexico last week our friend Luis took us to a little stand for Elote also known as Corn in a Cup.  It is a street food that you can customize to suit your tastes.  Instead of the sour cream I used in this recipe, they gave you the option of using mayonnaise instead.  They also added a squeeze of lime to the corn.  You can spice it up with as much cayenne pepper as your taste buds can handle.

 This is how the Elote looks when it is served to you.  You mix it before eating it.


My husband ordered the corn mixture on to of potato chips. You start by cutting one side of the bag of chips.  Next comes a generous amount of nacho cheese. Followed by cooked corn, and heaping amounts of grated cheese.  It is finally topped off with another layer of nacho cheese and a sprinkle of the grated cheese.  He loved it!

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

  1. I like elote still on the cob,mmmmmm great stuff with the cotija, lime juice and mayo slather. Can't wait until the corn gets better and cheaper. $5.99 for 5 ears of dried looking corn? I think not.

  2. They offered it that way at the street stand. It looked really good but also messy so I opted for the cup.

  3. Linda, you should be aware, this corn is GMO corn (forbidden in Europe for human consumption), like all corn that is not labeled USDA Organic or NON-GMO.

    1. Thanks for the information, Kristen! That is great to know!
