  • 4 ears corn on the cob, grilled or cooked
  • 1 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp Mexican crema
  • 1/2 cup finely grated cotija cheese
  • 3 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp minced fresh cilantro
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Grill the corn using your preferred grill method (or a different method of cooking if you wish).
  • Cut the corn off the cob and place in a medium bowl.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients with the corn and mix well.
  • If desired, top with additional cheese and garnish with cilantro.
  • Serve immediately with tortilla chips.


I usually grill the corn using the first method described in this article at Serious Eats
Cotija cheese is a Mexican cheese that can be found in the specialty cheese section of most supermarkets. If you can't find Cotija, you can substitute feta. Mexican Crema is similar to sour cream and can be found in most supermarkets as well. I found it near the tortillas in the refrigerated section. Sour cream can be used as a substitute.
