  • 6 ears corn with husks
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1½ tsp, salt
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • ¾ tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp oil
  1. Remove husks, rinse and set in water.

  3. Using a blender or food processor, puree corn kernels until smooth.
  4. Saute onion, salt, basil and paprika. Add corn paste and mix well.
  5. Arrange husks into star patterns so the wide ends overlap in the center to create 6 envelopes.
  6. Place 2 tbsp of corn mix in the middle of each husk star.
  7. Fold the two long sides in and over the corn mixture, then fold the two ends toward the center so the corn mixture is covered. Tie each corn package securely with string.
