Mexican Grilled Corn (Must Try Recipe for Your Next BBQ)

26 Comments

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 SimplyRecipes.com

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

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!

    This is one of my FAVS! I live in Texas & we do this often. I don’t like mayo so I use very little almost none & it’s still GREAT!!! Bought ears today since my store has them 8/1.00 ready for Fri night!!!

    FYI Walmart carries pre-grated cotija cheese in a shaker container. Like grated Parmesan cheese. Makes it soooo easy to make this corn.

    I made a dip almost exactly like this for my oldest’s cinco de mayo potluck. i cut the corn off the cob and sauteed them in butter with a jalapeno. Just put it all in a bowl instead of on the cob. My kiddos thought it was weird, but tried and loved it!

    I did this but used Feta cheese and it tasted delicious!

    We actually do this all the time but simpler form.
    Boil the corn when done we put McCormick mayonnaise which has lime in it. Top it with Parmesan cheese and salt and chile tajin or Valentina sauce. Sooooo good

    Hello, my husband is Mexican just for it to be accurate to how they make it, all they use for toppings is mayonnaise, grated parmesan cheese and depending on your preference Mexican “chile” hot sauce. (Although I dont use the hot sauce, for your reference alot of Mexicans prefer “Valentina”) Very simple, you just slather mayo all over the corn then sprinkle the parmesan cheese all over.

      Thanks! This sounds so simple now I have to try it lol
