Local, non-GMO Colorado corn is here! I always get so excited this time of year. I love corn, but usually am too afraid to buy it in the off season since 88% of all corn that is grown is genetically modified- yikes! Luckily there are still a few local Colorado farmers growing corn the right way- including Olathe sweet corn. Sweet corn is a little whiter than normal corn and, like the name suggests, is much sweeter. Plus, you can’t beat the 2 ears for a buck price tag!
I love corn on the cob, but dressing it up makes this one extra tasty. Eloté is a Mexican street corn. When I first heard that it uses mayo I was a little turned off, but when you think about what mayo actually is (oil and eggs) it makes sense. I went for the more traditional style of Eloté, which uses chili powder, lime, cilantro and a Mexican-style feta cheese called Cotija. Cotija is much more mild than regular feta, but crumbles the same way. You can top yours with whatever your heart desires!
