And then we received a tweet from @WhatWeAte that made us go out and buy a fryer:

Thanks, @WhatWeAte. That looks so good, now we have to fry everything in the history of ever.

Elotes Batter
Mix flour, baking powder and sugar in large bowl. In medium bowl, mix 1/4 C sour cream, 1/4 C real (not bullshit) mayo and juice of one lime. Add to flour mixture, whisk in eggs, cheese and 1/8 tsp chile powder. Stir in corn.

Fry Time
Heat oil in a deep fryer to 365 degrees. Using a scoop or spoon, drop a scoop of the elotes batter into the oil. (Our scoop is approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons.) Fry until golden brown, approximately 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to dry on a paper-towel lined plate. Work in batches, about 4 at a time.

Dipping Sauce and Garnish
Mix 3-4 T real (not bullshit) mayo, 3-4 T sour cream, juice of lime wedge and 1/8 t chile powder. Serve alongside fried elotes with remaining lime wedges.

EAT.
With face.
