We've taken one of Mexico's most iconic street eats and transformed it into this "delicioso dip," that creates a "come-one-come-all," craveable sharing plate for this super trendy and trending flavor profile.
Place corn cobs until a broiler or salamander, rotating occasionally, until corn begins to brown and char. Remove from heat source and cool. Once cooled remove corn from cob.
