This recipe is original from south-America, mainly from Argentina, Peru and Chile. The more fresh are the ingredients, especially the corn (hopefully not from a can), the better it will taste. It also gives it a bit more flavour to add some sugar on top before eating. *Here in Chile we eat with tomatoes and chili.

5 cups corn, yellow
