Mexican Style Grilled Street Corn

Sweet summer corn is delicious all on its own, but charring it on the grill and covering in cojita, creamy mayonnaise, zesty chipotle, fresh-squeezed lime and fresh cilantro packs this corn-on-the-cob with incredible dimension and flavor—a true delicacy. This makes a great cookout side dish, or a perfect summertime appetizer.
