a little runnier than i prefer, but other than that add a little mexican hot sauce like cholula to spice it up a bit and give it a little more flavor.

I'm still partial to my summer corn-on-the-cob with butter, salt, and fresh-ground pepper, but this was nice and different. I really liked the chili powder and cheese with the corn (the mayo took a bit of getting used to, but I'm not a big mayo fan). Good new taste venture for those corn-lovers among us.
