Love Corn on the Cob?🌽

This summer make your own version of mouth-watering Mexican grilled street corn that’s bursting with bright flavor and a tasty creamy texture. This idea takes very little preparation and promises to be the HIT of your next BBQ!

I recently made Mexican Grilled Corn as a side dish and everyone LOVED it!

Mexican Grilled Corn

Adapted from


  • 6-8 ears of sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (or try Mexican Crema)
  • 1/2 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder (or to taste)
  • juice from one lime
  • zest from one lime
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese, crumbled


1.) Wash and husk corn. (Note: I decided to tie husks at the bottom to use as a handle, but will soak corn next time for 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.)

2.) Heat grill to about 400 degrees and oil the grates. Grill corn for about 10 minutes turning a couple times until evenly cooked.

3.) Whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, and chili powder.

4.) Take corn off the grill and brush on the cream mixture.

5.) Roll corn in crumbled Cotija cheese and add extra chili powder and lime juice if desired. (In case you can’t find Cotija try Parmesan.)

Get ready to bite into HEAVEN! SO GOOD!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
