Grilled Mexican Street Corn Recipe

This is one of those foods that when someone describes it to you, you smile and nod and say, “Oh…interesting…” when in your head you’re thinking, Um…no, I don’t think so. Mayo doesn’t belong on corn.

And I would have agreed with you until I actually tried it. I don’t know how it works, it just does. It’s fresh and crunchy and just all around wonderful!

Start off by grilling some corn cobs. I suggest soaking them for about 10 minutes first, so the husks don’t turn into flaming husks of doom when you cook them. I grill mine for a total of 20 minutes, turning them every 5 minutes.

When the corn is done, carefully remove the husks. I use pot holders, because just-grilled corn husks are H-O-T. Consider yourself warned.

Then mix together the sour cream and mayo and slather it onto the corn cobs. I kind of love the word “slather.” It’s so much more descriptive than “spread.”

Then squeeze some lime juice on there.

And, finally, chili powder. If you’re not into spicy food, don’t worry. It’s not spicy. Trust me, I’m a spice wimp.
