I love grilled corn on the cob! I love the little bit of char that the you get from the grill and not to mention - corn on the cob is such a great summer grillin' vegetable. And what kid doesn't love some corn on the cob? Our kids had 2 friends over for dinner and we made them corn on the cob for just that reason - I mentioned Elote to my husband thinking he may want to try it another time but he loved the idea and wanted me to make it that night. I was a bit nervous - I know my kids are good at trying new things but I know a lot of kids (and adults) who prefer to stick to what they know. But - we made it anyway and you know what? Even the picky kid loved it! I think this is going to be how we make corn from now on. You can add any seasonings you wish, I didn't add salt because the cheese was salty enough but next time I am adding chili powder to the adult portions. I'm so glad we tried this recipe.
Our recipe had a small cheat - we didn't have any Cotija cheese in the house but we did have a huge block of feta so our Mexican Corn has a Greek twist...enjoy!!!
What you need:
Shucked corn (4-6 for this recipe)
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup crumbled Cotija or feta cheese
What you do:
Grill corn for about 10-12 minutes or until tender, turning often.
Meanwhile combine the mayonnaise and lime juice in a small bowl.
After you remove the corn from the grill, brush with mayo/lime mixture and season. Finish by crumbling cheese over top.
