Elote

servings 4

4 ears corn
4 tablespoons of mayonnaise*
chili powder
lime, zested
4 ounces queso fresco or queso cotija

*making your own mayo makes all the difference

First, shuck your corn if it isn’t.

Preheat grill pan to high.  Now would be a good time to make mayo if you’re going to –

Grill corn on high heat.

This is what I look for in grilled corn –

Meanwhile, zest a lime and crumble 4 ounces of cheese

So once your corn is marked and tender to your liking.  Take it off heat.

Slather it with mayo and sprinkle it with chili powder

Then roll it in the lime-y cheese and serve with lime wedges to juice over the Elote.
