"Mexican flavors for grilled corn."

Serves 6-8 | Prep Time 10-15 minutes | Cook Time 10-15 minutes grill time

Why I Love This Recipe

Fresh corn just can't be beat, and grilling it is my favorite way of cooking it. These Mexican flavors take the grilled corn up a notch. I fell in love with Mexican Street Corn during a visit to San Antonio where, in the Old Mexico area of the city, Food Trucks sell the best hot tamales and Mexican street corn.

Ingredients You'll Need

6-8 ears of sweet corn, husked and silk removed
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. mayo
1/2 c. cilantro, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 t. ground chipotle pepper or chili powder, to taste
zest from one lime
2 T. lime juice, from one lime
1/2 c. cotija or feta cheese, crumbled
freshly ground sea salt to taste


Husk corn and remove silk, preheat grill to 400F. Clean grates. Meanwhile, in a bowl mix together sour cream, mayo, cilantro, garlic, chipotle or chili powder, lime zest, lime juice. Taste and add salt as needed. Set aside. Grill corn until slightly charred and browned on all sides. Using brush or spoon, coat each ear of corn with sauce, then sprinkle with cheese. Sprinkle with additional cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.
