Ingredients

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add the chulpe corn, cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium. Once you hear the kernels pop (like popcorn), shake the pot vigorously to prevent the kernels on the bottom from burning. Once the popping slows, after about 6 to 8 minutes, drain the canchita on a platter lined with paper towels to remove excess oil. Season with salt while the corn is still warm and serve with ceviche.
