Spicy Corn on the Cob

Makes: 4 servings

4 ears corn, shucked
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup crumbled cotija cheese


Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Grill the corncobs until lightly charred and cooked, turning over as needed, about 10 to 12 minutes total.

In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise and lime juice. In a separate bowl, mix together the chili powder, cumin, and salt.

Coat the corn in the butter, then spread the mayonnaise-lime mixture on all sides. Sprinkle with the cheese and the dry seasoning mixture. Eat immediately.

Variation: If you can’t find cotija cheese, feel free to substitute grated Parmesan cheese.
