Probably completely different than any corn dish you have tasted before- unless you have bought this from a street vendor in a Latin country or an area gretly influenced by the hispanic culture like Texas or Florida! This method really brings out the sweetness in the corn. I enjoyed this so much when I visited Mexico. You could see people all over town eating this on the cob as they stroll and shop. I think it makes a fabulously different side, especially when bbqing or grilling. They are called esquites- es-KEY-tays or elotes- a-LOW-tays- depending on the location. We just call 'em good! Hope you like it!
