Variations: Feel free to swap out any of additional southwestern warming spices to your preference. For spicier tastes, keep the jalapeño seeds intact. For those sensitive to spice, feel free to adjust jalapeño accordingly.
Serving Suggestion: The elote mixture can be prepared ahead of time and chilled in the refrigerator. Since oxidizations happens relatively quickly, prepare the avocado right before serving and don’t forget to squeeze them with a bit of lime.
Beverage Pairing: Pair with your favorite southwestern themed cocktail or a refreshing iced tea to help cool the spice from the jalapeño (and summer heat!).
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
