    Sharon123's Note:

    I'm not sure where in Mexico this is eaten, but it doesn't matter, it's good! Adapted from Gourmet magazine (2006). I find the cotija cheese in super Walmart (or use feta). Cook time is estimated for cooking of corn.

      Great recipe but I prefer cutting it off the cob, placing in a styrofoam cup and mixing with lime, mayonnaise, parmesan or cotijo cheese, tobasco or any hot sauce, cayenne...yum..I also add finely chopped cilantro...add the ingrediates that appeal to you..just mix it up good before you eat.. This is sold by many vendors on streets in Houston and San Antonio, Tx

      I love this corn. First time I tried it was when I studied abroad in Querretaro Mexico (Central Mexico about 2 hours south of Mexico City). Street vendors everywhere we went would sell this. When I came back to the states I fashioned my own recipe similar to this so I could continue to enjoy. When I grill this, I soak the corn in the husks, grill it in the husks until tender and then I peel back the husks, and brown it a little more. Leave the husks on the cob to use as a handle; just like the street vendors would do it in Mexico.

      Oh how I love corn! DH can have everything else, on my plate and his just give me the corn! LOL! This is so delicious! I opted for the feta because that was the only cheese in the house. The combination of the sweet from the corn the salty from the cheese and tart from the lime was out of this world! Delicious Sharon! Thank you so much for a new favorite! Made for KK's Grilling Tag
