Calabacitas con Elote (Zucchini with Corn)
September 15, 2011

This was a good, solid recipe, and we enjoyed it and have made it a couple of times. It's not "oh my goodness - amazing!" quality, but definitely a nice, tasty sort of weeknight side-dish. I tossed the (cheese-less) leftovers the next morning into my scrambled eggs, which I enjoyed a lot (probably enough to make this dish specifically for that purpose), which made my breakfast a bit healthier due to the vegetables. Cotija cheese is available in pretty much every supermarket in southern california, so I had no problems finding that, but I think it would also be good with queso fresco, panela, or any mild and crumbly sheep's milk cheese. I don't think feta would be a good substitute, as suggested by previous reviewers because it's too salty.
