Hi! We are re posting this delicious for the weekend. It’s the perfect entertaining recipe, and a fun twist on Elote, our Elote Bruschetta! I love this recipe and I plan on making it this weekend for some friends. If you want to get extra crazy – add a layer of smashed avocado before topping it with the corn – it’s amazing. Also – this is great with eggs the next morning if you have leftovers. :)
