  • Summary

    This spicy version of corn on the cob will steal the show as an addition to your next grilled meal or as the centerpiece. Briefly boiled and then charred on a high heat grill, the corn develops a robust, earthy flavor of deepened sweetness and smoke. When slathered with a spicy mayonnaise, cojita cheese, cilantro leaves and a squeeze of lime, it's really out of this world delicious.

    • ¼ cup Mayonnaise
    • 2 teaspoons Chipotle Chile Powder
    • ¾ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
    • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice
    • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter (, melted)
    • 1/3 cup Cotija Mexican Cheese (, grated)
