Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Remove the husks of the corn, but leave the core attached at the end so you have something to hold onto.
  2. Grill the corn on a hot grill or cast iron frying pan, until slightly charred, turning so it gets cooked evenly all over.
  3. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream, and cilantro together.
  4. Grate the Parmesan in another bowl.
  5. While the corn is still warm, add the mayonnaise mix, and mix well.
  6. Squeeze lime juice over the corn, and top with Parmesan.
  7. Season with chili powder, to taste. Mix well.
  8. Serve with extra lime wedges.
  9. Note: You can cut the corn in half to make more if you like.

This was very different, but very tasty. I think next time I will try using the Mexican type cheese called Queso Fresco or Cotija Cheese and see how that tastes. It needed a tad bit of salt for my taste, but other than that, DELICIOSO!! Thanks for sharing!!

I have been doing a lot of Mexican cooking and I couldnt wait to make this corn. It went so good with our Fish tacos over the weekend!

I have had this recipe for some time and wanted to make it, so we had it last night. The corn was delicious, though a little messy, but of course it doesn't matter, because it's so darn good! Plan on having more than one ear a piece!
