What corn to grow for Mexican style street corn?

Trying to replicate that wonderful corn they serve on the streets in Mexico. Chewy, flavorful, with queso, chile sauce, some sort of white sauce and lime. The corn is much tastier then the super sweet corn I buy in the store around here, although I can buy high quality sweet corn, sometimes 10 ears for a dollar.
I want something with a corny taste, but not something that taste like I need to grind it for cornmeal or feed it to the chickens.

RE: What corn to grow for Mexican style street corn?

What they generally serve on the street is either a regular dent or a flour corn, in the milk stage. Either way, if left past the milk stage, these corns would be good for grinding too.

We grow Mesquakie Indian and Cherokee Squaw, both available through Sandhill Preservation Center. They're both usable for this kind of dish, and they're both well adapted to our growing conditions.

Tahlequah, OK
