Making Tuesday Tasty-Corn On Cob With Cheese And Lime

In Phoenix there are food carts with just these little babies in them. Super messy, flavorful, corn cobs! A favorite Mexican treat. You can of course adjust these to your liking. Enjoy!


4 ears of corn in the husk
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/8 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
3/4 cup shredded cotija or feta

Accompaniment: lime wedges


Prepare grill.
Soak corn in husks in cold water 10 minutes. Drain corn and grill on a rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals until husks are charred, about 10 minutes. Shuck corn and grill until kernels are browned in spots, about 10 minutes.
While corn is grilling, in a small bowl whisk together mayonnaise and cayenne. Using the small teardrop-shaped holes on a four-sided grater grate cotija.
Brush mayonnaise mixture onto hot corn and sprinkle with cojita.
Serve corn on the cob with lime wedges.
