Chorizo Elote Corn Dogs

Chorizo Elote Corn DogsMy buddy Jeff came up with the idea for these Elote Corn Dogs as we were discussing how bummed we were about the new food choices at Miler Park during Milwaukee Brewers games this year.

I mean, I’ve come to terms with the fact that for some reason the Brewers don’t want to offer the Racing Sausages Corn Dog I created a few years back — although I have no idea why, because it would be a guaranteed best seller — but when you make a big deal about how your new foods for 2019 are a BBQ chicken sandwich, cheese fries and a waffle with chocolate sauce on it you’re seriously doing something wrong. I have no idea who they have in charge of creating the menu items at Miller Park each year, but whoever it is should be fired immediately.

One of the other new items the Brewers started selling this year is elote, which for those of you who have never had the pleasure of trying it is corn that’s coated in mayonnaise, chili powder, cotijta cheese, lime juice and cilantro. Don’t get me wrong, elote is delicious and I absolutely love it, but it isn’t exactly anything new.

Jeff’s idea was to make corn dogs using chorizo sausages instead of hot dogs and then brush them with mayonnaise and top them with everything that goes into elote. That way you get corn dogs — which everybody loves — combined with the awesomeness of elote in a totally new food that’s perfect for game day.

Alright Brewers, it’s up to you now. You can keep promoting the same boring old foods or you can start selling awesome original new stuff like these Chorizo Elote Corn Dogs or Racing Sausages Corn Dogs or any of the other amazing ideas you can find right here at Let’s get the fans here in Milwaukee excited about ballpark food again! Let’s make it happen!
