“This is backyard barbecue stuff right here. Serve as an appetizer or a side—it’s our version of elote (Mexican street corn), and we even use corn nuts (the kind you get at the truck stop) for crunch. We make these peppers in our wood fired oven at the restaurant, but you could do them on a stove or on a really hot charcoal grill.”
