Mexican Street Corn


Serves 8
4 ears of corn, husk and silk removed, halved
¼ cup (60 ml) sour cream
¼ cup (60 ml) mayonnaise
1 garlic clove, minced
½ tsp (2.5 ml) ground cumin
½ lime, juice only
salt and pepper, to taste
1 cup (250 ml) Cotija cheese
1 tsp (5 ml) Tajin seasoning or Mexican spice rub
1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped cilantro leaves


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill corn, rotating occasionally, until slightly charred on all sides, about 10 to 15 minutes total. Let cool for a minute or two before proceeding to the next step.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, cumin and lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Using a pastry brush, generously brush sour cream mixture onto corn while it is still warm. Crumble Cotija cheese onto a plate and roll corn in it; it should stick to sour cream coating. To finish, sprinkle with Tajin and chopped cilantro and serve immediately.
