ELOTE

One of my favorite places I have been to in Nashville is called “Mas Tacos,” and I went there with a friend last year. She just had ACL surgery so I decided to recreate her a dinner similar to the one we had at Mas Tacos because we both fell in love with their menu there!

First of all, my friend loves pineapple, so I decided to make the pineapple teryiaki boats again and assemble tacos with the pineapple rice on the bottom, teriyaki chicken and then some guacamole on top and it was probably the best taco combination ever. Finished off with feta would have made it perfect in my opinion!!

Then I also made some caramelized plantains and Elote for sides, which are the same sides we had at Mas Tacos. The Elote was incredible, so I did my best to copy what they did. Elote is just a Mexican street corn on the cob. All I did was boil the corn, then cook it some more on the stove top in a pan to get that grilled corn effect because I sadly do not have a grill, rubbed some butter on it, sprinkled Parmesan cheese to stick to the butter and finally finished it off with some paprika. Wasn’t the same as Mas Tacos but I would say it was pretty close for an amateur!

It was an awesome meal and definitely worthy to be made again!

Zucchini Rose Corn Pie

Today I needed to use up some zucchini, so I made this recipe that I found. I didn’t exactly follow the directions as listed so it ruined any chance at an awesome picture but that’s ok… I put the zucchini roses in the baking pan before the corn mixture when it should have been the other way around, but it was still a great recipe! Note to future self: think it needed about 10 more minutes longer though. Regardless, would love to make it again!
