Recipe: Mexican Grilled Corn
Recipe type: Side Dish
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • Cortija cheese (or substitute queso fresco cheese)
  • Mexican Crema or Mayonnaise (to lighten this up use sour cream or plain greek yogurt instead)
  • Garlic Salt
  • Chili Powder
  • Fresh Lime Wedges
  • 4 ears of sweet corn
  1. Grill your corn or boil it until tender. While the corn is still warm, slather on mayo. Roughly chop your queso fresco or cortija cheese and roll the corn in the cheese. Sprinkle with garlic salt and chili powder.
  2. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze just before eating. Don't be stingy with the lime because it really adds a zip to this corn.
