Mexican Street Corn

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sharon123

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
