Is mid afternoon and I really want to have one of my favourites Mexican street Snack.
My cravings ask for “Elotes Paco or Elotes Rosy” from Ciudad Lerdo, Durango. You might wonder, What are “Elotes Paco or Elotes Rosy “?  these two, are Corn Street Vendors  or Corn Street Stands, place on the main squares in a town near the city where I’m from.“Elotes all dressed”.

It is very common to go and grab a elote all dressed and others snacks like Ice cream, aguas frescas, fried snacks, tortillones, candies, chips, and other Mexican Street Snacks.
I believe most of the Mexicans are reading this, know already what I am talking about and will understand when I say: “Elotes all dressed” or “Ezquites” (another way to call this Mexican Street snack)

Elotes all dressed is one of the most traditional Mexican Street Snack, which is basically cooked corn dressed with different topping like: Butter, Cream, Mayo, Shredded cheese, home made salsa, salsa valentina, Chilli Powder, splash of lime, salt and pepper; Can be bought in a plastic glass or  (whole corn ear) and believe me all mix together makes the one most delicious and simple afternoon snack.

Living in Montreal is impossible to find Elotes Street Vendors (I wish), so the only way I can eat them are doing them myself.
