Yes, the fresh local corn is in right now and we are enjoying the bounty. Elote-style is one of our favorite ways to prepare corn---we've been hooked on it since sampling it while vacationing in Mexico. I hope all will like this recipe. The cotija cheese is worth searching for---it really does make a difference.
