Sometimes spelled cuitlacoche but pronounced - wheat la coach eh - is certainly an aquired taste that I have somehow aquired. I can remember seeing this stuff on the corn in the fields and thought it was by far the grossest thing that could have happened to my sweet ears of corn, now I wish I could find it. One little can like this will set you back more than five bucks, that is if you can find it. You can make different things with it but I like it simple in a quesadilla or dolloped on a cheese omelete, it isnt a weak flavor so consider this a warning.
Corn smut. It does sound so pornographic but how else to describe this inky, milky, gooey, ooze that is so darn tasty, plus I didnt make it up.
the perils of ageing is I never got the heads up on this.....
