  • 8 Ears of Corn husks and silk removed
  • 3 Tbsp Butter
  • 1/3 C Mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 tsp Kosher Salt
  • 2 tsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1/3 C Queso Fresco crumbled


  • Prepare a grill to medium-high heat. Place the corn cobs on a rack about 4 inches above the fire, and allow to cook until it starts to char, around 5 minutes. Turn and continue charring until all sides are slightly blackened.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the mayo and lime juice, set aside.
  • Remove corn from grill, then rub each with about 1 teaspoon of butter. Take the lime mayo and rub each cob with roughly 2 teaspoons of the mixture. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, chili powder, then add the crumbled queso fresco. Serve immediately.
