Mexican Corn

You’ll need:

  • Small bowl
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons (or you can just wing it!)
  • Citrus zester
  • Pastry brush



  • 6 to 8 medium sized ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup minced cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest, from one lime
  • 2 tablespoon lime juice, from one lime
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt to taste

Note: keep dried versions of the cilantro, garlic, and lime zest on hand in your pantry or pre-mix them before leaving home and keep seasoning in a food storage container.


  • Fire up the grill!
  • Make the sauce: whisk together the sour cream, mayo, cilantro, garlic, chipotle pepper, lime zest, and lime juice, adding salt to taste. Set the sauce aside.
  • Throw the corn on the grill and grill for about 3 minutes per side or until the kernels start darkening and charring. Turn over and repeat until all sides are brown. Remove from grill and place on a plate.
  • Coat each ear of corn with the creamy mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and additional chipotle pepper and cilantro to taste. Enjoy!
