Chipotle Elote

1 clove garlic (peeled)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Juice from 1/2 lime
1 to 2 chipotle chilis from a can
1 teaspoon cane sugar
1 cup finely crumbled cotija (use the food processor)
10 half-ears of corn 

Into the work bowl of your food processor, mini-prep, or immersion blender cup, add the garlic, mayo, lime juice, chipotle, and sugar. Blend until smooth. Set aside. 

Turn the broiler of your oven on high. Place the corn on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for about 10 minutes (turn the corn every 3 minutes) or until the sugars begin to caramelize. Remove from the oven and skewer one end with a bamboo skewer. Brush each with the mayo mixture and sprinkle with the cheese. Serve warm. Serves 5 as a side.

Looks great! I'm looking forward to reading your updates. Me and my husband are planning to revisit some of the dishes we've only cooked once or twice for our blog just to get them even yummier and/ or test that they still work out okay. Blogging makes a great testing ground for culinary experiments, but it's even more satisfying to have a really polished end product. We are hoping to publish our successful experiments in book form some day, as we enjoyed being part of a joint cookbook so much last year.
