CHORREADAS (COSTA RICAN CORN PANCAKES)

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh corn
  • 1/4 cup milk or water
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2-4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 Tbsp. oregano
  • Oil

Preparation

Whirl everything (except the oil) in a blender till smooth.

Pour into a bowl and warm oil in a cast-iron pan on medium-high heat.

Scoop out 2 spoons full into the pan and spread into a circle like pancakes.

Lower heat slightly, let it brown lightly (about 2 minutes), flip it over and cook till golden.

Put aside on a plate covered with a towel to keep warm and keep making more till the batter is gone.

SWEET version: omit the garlic and oregano. Add 4 tbsp. of your choice of liquid sweetener or 1/4 cup sugar.

CHEESY version: before flipping the pancake, sprinkle your choice of cheese on top and flip it. Make sure your pan is well greased to keep the cheese from burning into your pan.
