Some time ago I was at WalMart and cruising down the meat case. Not sure why because I don't buy meat there. This time though, I ended up buying some. The reason being they had American raised lamb breast. Lamb breast is the same cut as pork spareribs. I decided to give them a try since they were American raised. I find Australian lamb most often.

2 cups whole kernel corn
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup cotija cheese, grated
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 Tbs minced cilantro
pinch chipotle powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Melt butter in cast iron skillet over med heat and add the corn. Cook, stirring time to time, until the corn picks up some color. While the corn is cooking, combine the mayo, cheese, chili powder, cilantro, salt, pepper, and chipotle powder in a bowl and mix well. When the corn is done, add it to the bowl with the other ingredients and mix well. Taste and adjust if needed. Once on the plate sprinkle with the smoked paprika as garnish.
All these go well together or would do well with completely different menus. I will say I gave the Elotes recipe to someone that was looking for something different to do with corn. A couple of days later she let me know it was a hit and her husband cleaned it up.
Give these a try and let me know what you think.
