Piping hot corn on the cob is smeared with mayonnaise and dredged with Queso or Cotija cheese, fresh cilantro, chile powder, lime and plenty of salt and pepper.
Sweet yet savory, salty, spicy and succulent all at the same time with a bite of citrus, it will bring a burst of zesty delicious-flavored sunshine into your life!
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Brush corn lightly with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast 20-25 minutes. Alternately you can grill or boil it.
Working with one ear of corn at time brush with mayonnaise, sprinkle with cheese, cilantro and chile powder, pressing it onto the corn to help it stick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve with lime wedges.
You CAN grill the corn which is probably a more traditional way of cooking it. But I'm a big believer in roasting. All those sweet juices get trapped inside the kernels until they nearly burst with joy.
Don't be afraid of frozen corn on the cob if fresh isn't available. It's frozen at the peak of freshness and can be almost as good. You can also use "loose" corn and mix the ingredients right into it.
