Dia de los Muertos Dinner



Mexican Grilled Corn - Recipe from I Wash You Dry

Here's what you need:

6 ears of corn (shucked & fibers removed)
1 TBsp mayonaise
2 TBsp sour cream
1/2 cup Cotija cheese
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup cilantro (chopped - the hubby put some on his, but I don't care for it)
1 lime (cut into 6 wedges)

How to make them:

Heat grill over medium heat and spray rack with non-stick cooking spray.
Grill corn, turning frequently (so as not to burn them) until the corn is slightly browned and heated through, about 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine the mayo and sour cream in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
In another small bowl, combine the chili powder, salt and pepper.
Slather the hot grilled corn with the mayo/sour cream mixture (pastry brush works great), then sprinkle on the chili powder mixture.
Coat in Cotija cheese and sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
Serve with a lime wedge (to squirt lime juice on the cobs)
ENJOY!
