    Katzen's Note:

    Street vendors across Mexico sell this style of roasted or grilled corn topped with mayonnaise, chili powder and Cotija cheese. You can serve the unadorned corn on a platter with small bowls of the sauce, cheese and lime on the side so everyone can make their own. Found online on Eating Well.

      Delicious! Couldn't find cojito, so I went to a local Mexican restaurant and begged. Not sure if they gave me cojito or feta....but it seemed a bit creamier than feta. Loved the mayo/sour cream mix on the corn! Definitely a recipe I'll make again. Thanks for sharing!

      Enjoyed very much! I bought a super sweet corn b/c that is what store had, soaked corn a long time as we do NOT like the sugary syrup taste of super sweet corn. I also did not have Cojito but use feta instead. Thank you katzen for sharing. Made for Veggie Swap Dec. 2010.
