    I think we're talking about the same thing. apparently the street vendors in dallas call "esquites" "elotes" for some reason.

    Whatever you call it, it's fucking great and I sure do miss it.

    Yeah, i guess it depends on the place; we call "elotes" to the "Corn cob" and we call "Esquites" just the "corn" without a cob usually served in a small cup (and spiced with lemon, chilli and butter...)

    Either way: i want one!

    Hell yes, the cup with lemon, chili, butter and cheese.
    I did a little research and in the northern part of mexico, they don't say esquites but they do say vasito de elotes.
    So I guess these street vendors in dallas are from the north, and they just shortened "vastito..." to just " elotes. "

    Anyway, they sure don't have that shit up here in the panhandle

    Elote


    Esquite


    It's the same , the only thing that change is if you want the corn complete or if you want it in a disposable cup, some people add mayonaise, chilli, lemon, butter, and other people cook the corn with chicken or marrow (tuetano)

    But if you go to dallas, where elotes are a BIG deal (and are sold by actual immigrants and not culture appropriating gueros,) elotes means what you are calling esquites.

    That's just they way it is. I THINK it's that way in Texas in general.

    Check it out @AThousandDaysBefore so you know I'm not confused.
