Mexican Style (Spicy) Corn on the Cob

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by B-B-Q Man

This came from one of my Mexican co-workers who had brought it for a carry in. It is very simple to make. I was a little skeptical about the mayonnaise but when I ate it, I devoured it.

I live in Mexico and this is a common street vendor fare. Some people also add a few drops of lime juice to make it tangy.Vendors use a pastry brush to spread the mayo. Sour cream can be used instead of mayo. Cheese can also be grated queso añejo or cotija. Finely minced fresh epazote l will give it an exotic herb flavor

  1. Roast the corn on a charcoal grill just until tender and you have nice grill marks.
  2. Liberally spread mayo on piece of bread.
  3. Roll hot ears on the bread.
