8 medium ears of sweet corn, husks removed
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/2 cup of sour cream
1/2 cup of cilantro, chopped finely
1/2 cup of Etafay cheese, crumbled
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 tsp of lime zest, finely grated
2 tbsp of lime juice, freshly squeezed
1/2 tsp of ground chipotle pepper
Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400 F. Remove husks from ears of sweet corn and set aside.
In a bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic, cilantro, lime zest and juice.
Place corn directly onto grill. Grill for 2-3 minutes or until kernels look charred and golden brown. Turn over and repeat until all sides of corn are browned. Remove corn from grill and set aside on a plate.
With a brush or a spoon, coat each ear of corn with mixture. Hold corn by the tips and turn while applying mixture to coat evenly.
Sprinkle with crumbled pieces of Etafay and chipotle pepper. Serve immediately with a side of lime wedges.
