Words cannot express how much I love Mexican street corn! You can find it in every food stand/cart and restaurant throughout Mexico and every region has their own way of preparing this popular snack. I grew up eating corn in a cup prepared with butter, lime juice, grated cheese and hot sauce but as I grew older my craving for corn on the cob grew especially when fire roasted. This recipe for chipotle mayonnaise is one of my favorite toppings and it is highly addictive, I must warn. It is also perfect for summer cookouts and camping trips to the lake so if you like your corn on the cob.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Mexican street corn is one of my favorites and I love Adriana's version. The delicious spicy chipotle sauce is wonderful on top of sweet crisp corn. Grated Cotija cheese is a little salty and balances out the flavors. Once you try your corn this way, you're not going to want it any other way!

Ingredients

6 Tbsp
mayonnaise
1
chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
2
small garlic cloves
handful fresh cilantro with stems
juice of 1 lime
1 pinch
ground sea salt (adjust according to taste)
1 Tbsp
cotija cheese for topping
1/4 c
cotija cheese for serving
4-6
roasted corn on the cob

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Roast your corn on the cob.
2
In a blender or food processor, blend all ingredients until well incorporated.
3
The thickness of the sauce is up to you; I personally prefer it on the chunky side. If you find the sauce is too thick, add 1 tbsp. of water.
4
Spread a layer of the chipotle topping on each cob and sprinkle Cotija cheese. Serve while hot.
