Awesome corn! First time that I've used Cojita cheese at home - love it in the restaurants. The corn was really flavorful and fun to eat. Thanks GailAnn for another winner. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.

Wow this corn is crazy good! This was our first experience with cotija cheese and we really liked it. The sour cream/mayo mix melted right into the hot corn and was a great background for the cheese. We used ground chipotle pepper for chili powder and heat all in one. Fantastic - thanks for sharing the recipe!
