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.

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! The Test Kitchen
