I love corn. I know it's probably the most nutritional equivalent of air and reminds you you had it later (sorry but it's true); so when I stumbled across this find in my weekly groceries list I decided I needed to try it. If you've never had Mexican Street Corn it's quite a complex load of flavors on the tongue (a mixture of cotija cheese, mayo, sour cream, chile powder and lime and then...more cheese). It's a lot to take in when you eat it on the cob fresh and can get a tad messy as well. So I was pretty hopeful this could fit the bill in a convenient way. It did! The only thing missing is the temperature heat of the grilled corn, but the flavors are robust and there is a slight kick to it that makes you just want more, even if only to try to figure out what that taste flavor is. Trust me, my sig-oth who always turns down random dips actually asked for more than 5 samples because he just had to figure out what that "flavor" was. So if you're looking for a departure from the standard salsa for your tortilla dipping, give this a shot. Find it at ALDI'S.
Well it wasn't horrible but it just didn't fulfill the desire for shrimp and lobster, I mean I know, how could I expect a frozen lasagna-style meal to make me happy when what I really want is a grilled lobster tail and grilled shrimp? But, how can you resist something that looks so cheesy and tempting. It cooked up well and had a nice crust on the top but the size is good for 2 people as long as you make side dishes as well. I can't really say I tasted either the shrimp or the lobster but it was a cheesy hot meal on a long day and the cost was less than $7 for the whole meal. So, as long as you don't expect to be transported to Maine cuisine you'll be fine with this quick fix just don't expect to be satiated if it's seafood you crave.
