Visit Mexico City

Daniel asks…

Do you know the name/recipe for the corn snack Mexico City street vendors sell?

Several yeas back I visited Mexico City with some friends of mine and several street vendors were selling a corn snack in Styrofoam cups. I think it was basic corn (off the cob) with cilantro, some lime juice, and maybe cayenne pepper. Does anyone know what I am talking about? Can you provide me with a resource for the recipe – it was delicious!

Tijuana answers:

I don’t know the correct name for it, but I have eaten it several times. It is fresh roasted corn (off the cob) in a cup. There are a variety of things you can put on it – but mostly it is mayonesa (mexican mayonaisse that is lime flavored, mccormick makes this), lime juice and a pepper similar to cayenne , but different. You can find it at an international grocery store in the mexican section – it is usually eaten on fresh fruit.

James asks…

If the Swine Flu is based in Mexico City, how in the world did it make it to New York over night?

Let’s say the flu is very contagious. It can spread like wildfire. Fine. But even if it did, it’s not going to jump several thousand miles over night.

Okay, so someone will argue airplanes. But it appeared in eight school children. Were they all on the plane together visiting Mexico City?

How can something nobody’s ever heard about all of a sudden jump from Mexico City to Texas and then on to New York within a day. What about everything in between?

Tijuana answers:

I just know its possible. But i have now idea how.

Most probably it wasn’t overnight. It seemed to be over night because of when it was discovered in Mexico. It was probably around way earlier but only discovered the day before it was discovered in New York.
