Serves: 5
  • 5 ears sweet corn
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • Juice from one lime
  • ¼ cup crumbled Cotija cheese
  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish (optional)
  1. Preheat the grill to medium heat (between 350-450) You can leave the corn husks on or take them off for some pretty grill marks.
  2. Place the corn directly over the heat and grill for 10-15 minutes, turning often.
  3. Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine the garlic powder with the mayonnaise, sour cream and the juice from half the lime, set aside.
  4. Place the cotija cheese in a shallow baking dish or on a plate. When the corn is done, remove husks and brush the corn with the garlic mayonnaise mixture. Roll in the cotija cheese and sprinkle with cilantro and chili powder. Serve with the lime wedges to squeeze over the corn
