This is a method, not really a recipe. Sometimes we're craving a Mexican elote, but don't have fresh corn available. This is a quick fix for that craving. Sometimes we use fresh corn, scraped from the cob. Sometimes we sub a 50/50 mix of sour cream and mayo for the crema. Sometimes we sprinkle finely chopped cilantro as well. Mmm-Mmm good!
