• 8 ears of fresh corn with shucks on
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk (evaporated is best)
  • 1 tomato, peeled, seeded and chopped
  • 2 eggs, beaten


Cut corn off of the cobs.

Save the cobs and husks. Take the largest husks and put into a pan of boiling water to soften.

Heat the butter in a pan, add the onion, and cook until soft.

Add the tomato, salt and pepper, and sugar and cook for 5-6 minutes.

Add the corn, milk, and eggs and cook for 10 minutes.

Stir constantly while this step is in progress.

Remove the husks from the water and dry.

Place 3 tablespoons of the corn mixture on the centre of each husk.

Fold the sides of the husks over to form a small package (use 2 leaves if you need to do so) and tie with string.

Place cobs in the bottom of the pot of boiling water and place the humitas on top of the cobs.

Cover the pot and simmer for 30 minutes.
