Trader Joe’s Hack: Elote Tater Tots With Pulled BBQ Pork

by Shaina

Somewhat recently my boyfriend and I went to the Treasure Island Flea Market up in the Bay Area. Its one of those things that was on my bucket list before we made the move down to Southern California. I love shopping for cool antiques and one of a kind handmade items… my boyfriend… not so much. ┬áHe does however, love drinks and food so when I told him there would be over 40 different food and drink venders he was all in.

When we arrived we went straight for the food and bar trucks. I mean, duh, food and alcoholic beverages always come first. We took a couple laps around the circle of food trucks and on our second lap we noticed a bright yellow and red sign that read “Elote Tots.” If you’re reading this post odds are you’ve had elote before and know how amazing it is. If you haven’t had elote before, its basically corn on the cobb smothered in cotija cheese, mayo, lime juice, butter, salt, and paprika or chili powder. Now that I’m writing it out it sounds kind of gross but it tastes oh so good! Add tater tots and BBQ pork to the mix… never a bad thing.

This recipe is basically my knock off version of the elote tots we had at the Treasure Island Flea Market using nothing but Trader Joe’s ingredients. It was a total hit! Will definitely be making this again. Let me know how you liked it! Leave a comment below.
