Mexican street corn with Chef Char

Posted at 5:56 PM, Sep 12, 2019


  • 1 Ear cooked corn on the cob
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup queso fresco (also called Mexican crumbling cheese)
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • Chili powder to taste
  • Classic Mexican hot sauce to taste
  • Garnish with cilantro


On the cob directions:  Prepare the corn any way you like (boiled, grilled, microwaved, etc.) and remove from heat.  Place the cooked ear of corn over a plate and coat lightly with mayonnaise.  Crumble the queso fresco and spoon the cheese over the mayonnaise on the cob.  Squeeze the juice of one lime over the crumbled cheese and mayonnaise.  Sprinkle with chili powder and add the hot sauce to taste.  Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!

As a salad directions:  Remove kernels of cooked corn from the cob then prepare the corn by sautéing in a lightly oiled pan. Place cooked corn kernels in a cup or bowl and add mayonnaise (optional), queso fresco, lime juice, chili powder, hot sauce and chopped cilantro.  Stir and enjoy.
