Pixar Fest is one big Disney food party, y’all. And if you’re idling in Radiator Springs, you’ll want to cruise over to the Cozy Cone Motel and pull in at Popcone.

Popcone is the pit stop for a reinvented street food we love: Elote. You know Elote — corn on the cob slathered in mayo and dusted with Tajin spice. (We even told you about a DIY version available at Disneyland!)

In this Pixar Fest version of the tasty snack, Elote is essentially deconstructed and served in a handy cup! It’s called the Champions Corn Cup (think…Piston Cup!), and it’s comprised of all the components elote requires: Fresh Corn, Mayo, Cotija Cheese, Chili-Lime Spice, and a wedge of Lime!

The presentation of the Champions Corn Cup is great — with bursts of color from the lime, a couple of cilantro leaves, and a smattering of the Chili-Lime Spice. (This is Tajin. Let’s just call it Tajin.)

The Cotija Cheese is a great touch — crumbly and refreshing with the spice. And the spice is great — giving the Cup a surprising amount of heat!

The profile view shows that the Cup is layered — but the cup makes it fun and easy to mix up so you get everything together in each bite.

And, well, it’s not the prettiest food we’ve ever seen when it’s all combined, but it tastes dynamite!
