Corn Tomalito Recipe

In preparation for a party I discovered the Chevy's Fresh Mex Sweet Corn Tomalito Recipe . I love this stuff and can't tell you how excited I was to find the recipe online. I'm sharing the link because it actually tastes like I got it from the restaurant. You know how some recipes claim to be authentic and then they taste nothing like the original. Well this one lives up to expectations.

Note - the serving size for the recipe says 12 -16 but it yielded enough to fill a large soup bowl.

If you want the dish to look true to the original here's how to make the cactus. Just cut a tortilla into a cactus shape with cooking scissors. Spray with vegetable cooking spray and pop in the oven at 375 till lightly toasted. I didn't have orange tortillas on hand but that's what they use at the restaurant.

I'll make it based on your recommendation, but I am curious as to what type dish it is, having never been to that restaurant before.

Is it a side veggie dish, or a type of cornbread, or a dip? :-o

Oh man I love that stuff. Once my friend and I realized you could order a side of it for a dollar we bought 20 dollars worth and took it home, lol! Yaaay!

Nice one! I like the tortilla cactus idea. Very fresh and it makes that dish special.
