Corn And Tortillas @ Canal Street Bistro
No ingredient is more common in Mexican cooking than corn. But tell me when you’ve ever seen corn kernels playing a major role in a dish. This is one of those rare examples. It looks like its description: a pile of fresh corn kernels cooked with peppers, onions and an invisible sauce making it tangy. Everything, including the onions, are still crisp. All this is piled atop homemade tortilla chips. Great with a glass of made-to-order sangria.
