Easy and delicious Elote en Vaso (corn in a cup). Layers of corn with cojita cheese, hot sauce and Mexican crema.
In a bowl mix spices and cheese together. In 8 oz cups Layer corn with crema, cheese and spices mixture, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Repeat.
Serve this dish warm! If the corn is nice and hot when you place it in the cups it will be perfect to serve immediately. The cheese will start to melt and mix with the crema. Creating the best texture and flavor! If your corn has cooled, re heat OR reheat the cups in the oven or warmer while waiting to serve. (only with heat safe cups of course)
YES! although, it is better fresh I have made this ahead and it worked! Layer the corn, cream and cheese together. Cover the cups with lid/plastic wrap and store in fridge. Before serving place in oven to warm, or microwave.
A good size for one person is 6-8 oz. My 12 oz cup is a nice, big portion 1 person serving. If you do any larger than 12 oz it would be big enough for two+ people to share. You can make this in ramekins for smaller portions, or small clear plastic cups too! Great for parties and dinners with guests.
