This is Mexico’s finest street dish, often sold in styrofoam cups. Growing up in the border city of El Paso, I saw elote en vaso sold at street corners, bazaars, and festivals. When I moved away from home I craved these steaming corn kernels drenched in melted butter and aromatic lime juice, topped with crumbly cheese. This is a very simple recipe that produces a comforting Mexican classic. Feel free to adjust the proportions
