 Ingredients List

  • 8 Ears of fresh corn
  • With shucks on
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 ts Fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 tb Butter
  • 1 ts Sugar
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 1/4 c Milk (evaporated is best)
  • 1 Tomato peeled, seeded,
  • & chopped
  • 2 Eggs beaten


Cut corn off of the cobs. Save cobs & husks! Take the largest husks, put
into a pan of boiling water to soften. Heat the butter in a pan, add the
onion, & cook til soft. Add the tomato, salt & pepper, & sugar and cook for
5-6 minutes. Add the corn, milk, & eggs and cook for 10 minutes. Stir
constantly while this step is in progress. Remove the husks from the water
and dry. Place 3 Tblspns of the corn mixture on the center of each husk.
Fold the sides of the husks over to form a small package. (use 2 leaves if
you need to do so) tie with string. Place cobs in the bottom of the pot of
boiling water and place the humitas on top of the cobs. Cover pot for 30
minutes. Serve hot! I like to add a bit of garlic to mine. I also use the
Sriracha or Tuong hot sauce too!
