Mexican Sweet Corn

For our main course, we had pork taco complete with all the fixings! But our 4th of July Celebration just wouldn't be complete without corn, so we fired up the grill and made one of our favorite sides, Mexican Sweet Corn.

  • Shucked and Cleaned Corn
  • Butter for grilling
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream or Mexican cream
  • 2 tsp chili powder or ancho powder
  • Grated Cojita cheese
  • Lime Wedges


  • Step One: Mix up the mayonnaise, cream, and powder.
  • Step Two: Set the corn on the grill for about 15 minutes or until it's slightly charred. Cover the corn with butter.
  • Step Three: You can either remove the corn from the cob and mix with ingredients in a bowl or you can spread the mixture on the corn cob.
  • Step Four: Once each of the corn cobs is covered in the mixture, it's time to roll in the Cojita cheese. If you can also add a bit of lime juice for an extra kick. Now it's ready to enjoy!
