The rich, hot corn off the cob sold from the Rico’s Elotes cart in front of Tony’s Neighborhood Store (820 N. Fitzhugh) makes an incredible side dish to your next Tex-Mex meal. My stomach turned a flip flop just thinking about it. Juanita is the super friendly lady who works the Rico’s Elotes cart at Tony’s. Seriously, just chatting with Juanita is fun—she’s one of those individuals who automatically makes me feel happy even though I’m about to inhale a fat leaden treat. She shaves the steaming corn off the cob fresh to order, mixes up this heavenly concoction of mayo, butter, Cojita & Parmesan cheeses and serves it like a corn sundae. The medium size is only about $2.50. In addition to the regular ingredients, there are other toppings available such as lemon pepper, hot sauce and lime salt. I didn’t say this concoction was healthy. I said heavenly… I’m a firm believer in (most) everything in moderation. It’s okay to go crazy occasionally, and Rico’s Elotes is just the place to make that happen. Lucky me, it’s only six blocks from my house. Closer, really.
