Total time
Serves: 4
  • 4 ears corn
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup Mexican Crema (or sour cream if you can't find Crema)
  • ½ cup Cotija cheese (or Feta cheese), crumbled, plus more for sprinkling over the ears.
  • 1 small bunch of Cilantro, chopped, reserving some to sprinkle on top of the ears
  • 2 cloves of garlic, diced fine
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder
  • 4 tbs. butter, divided
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • Salt
  1. Prepare a grill or grill pan with medium high heat. Shuck the corn, cleaning the ears of all the fibers and place directly on grill. Cook for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally, until the cobs are starting to become a bit blackened but with the majority of the kernels bright yellow.
  2. While the corn is on the grill, in a medium bowl mix together the mayonnaise, Mexican Crema, Cotija cheese, cilantro, garlic and the ancho chili powder.
  3. Slather each ear of grilled corn with a generous tablespoon of butter and several spoonfuls of the sauce. Drizzle a bit of the lime juice over the ears, followed by a pinch of salt and a healthy sprinkle of cheese and the remaining cilanto.
