What is Maiz Morado (not the peruvian kind?)

kirinraj | Dec 9, 2008 05:38 PM

Today in my local mexican grocery I picked up a bag of loose dried corn kernels called maiz morado, but it came in an unmarked bag with no info on it. It is not the very deep purple peruvian kind used for chicha morada. have a suspicion that it is blue corn, because it is reddish blue. ,Could any mexican food experts enlighten me onto its traditional uses.
