Mexican Grilled Corn
Original Recipe from Food Network
4 ears corn
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1 lime, juiced
Red chili powder, to taste
2 limes cut into wedges, for garnish
Remove the corn husks and silk, but leave the core attached at the end so you can use it as a handle. Grill corn on a hot grill or cast iron griddle pan until slightly charred. Turn it so it cooks evenly. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and cilantro together. Grate the Parmesan in another bowl. While the corn is still warm, slather with mayonnaise mix. Squeeze lime juice over the corn and top generously with Parmesan. Season with chili powder and serve with extra lime wedges.
