Mexican Grilled Corn


This may be the most delicious grilled corn recipe ever. In the video, you’ll see how to make a mayonnaise mixture with ancho chile powder, smoked pap... See morerika, and lime juice. What could be easier? You’ll briefly boil the corn before tossing it on the grill until charred beautifully and caramelized. Brush it with butter and the ancho mayo mixture and grate some Mexican cojita cheese over the top. The result? Amazing grilled corn with sweet, smoky, spicy flavors. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Mexican Grilled Corn. Garnish it with a wedge of lime. It’s so delicious, you may never grill corn any other way. See more Chef John videos >>
