Mexican Street Corn

Ingredients

  • 6 to 8 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest, from one lime
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice, from one lime
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled
  • Lime wedges, to serve

Instructions

  • Heat a gas or charcoal grill to 400F. Clean the grates once it has heated.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, cilantro, garlic, chipotle pepper, lime zest and lime juice. Taste and season the mixture with salt if needed. Set aside.
  • Place the husked corn directly onto grill grates. Grill the corn for about 3 minutes, undisturbed, or until kernels begin to turn golden brown and look charred. Turn over and repeat. When all sides are browned, remove from the grill onto a plate.
  • Using a brush or a spoon, coat each ear of corn with the sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with crumbled cojita cheese. Sprinkle with additional chipotle pepper, if desired. Serve immediately with extra lime wedges.
