Elotes asados

Elotes asados

It does not matter where you go in Guatemala, you are certain to find elotes asados (charbroiled corn on the cob).

This is what Laura McNamara shared with us on her post Craving Corn: Elote

It’s also fun to think about the tradition behind the Maya and their connection to corn as you get elote caught in your teeth. According to Popol Vuh —a sacred book that is casually referred to as the Mayan Bible— the first man and woman were made from corn. Thus, corn is a huge part of the Maya culture and diet.
