By Co+op, stronger together

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4


4 large ears of corn, shucked
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 medium lime, zested and juiced
2 tsp. ancho chili powder
1/4 cup crumbled cotija or grated Parmesan cheese


To grill corn, heat a gas grill on high for 20 minutes, or build a fire in a charcoal grill and wait for the coals to be covered with ash. While the grill heats, place the mayonnaise in a medium bowl and stir 1/4 teaspoon of the lime zest and 1/2 teaspoon of the juice. Reserve.
When the grill is hot, place the ears of corn over the hot side of the grill and cook, turning with tongs occasionally, until cooked and charred in spots. Coat each ear with mayonnaise and sprinkle with chili powder and cheese. Serve immediately.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with barbecue or BLTs, or enjoy as a standalone snack.
