Grilled Mexican Street Corn Recipe - this amazing corn on the cob is bursting with fresh mexican flavors!

This Grilled Mexican Street Corn recipe is so delicious and incredibly easy to make! Fresh summer corn coated in a creamy mixture of sour cream, mayo, chili powder and cotija cheese, then finished off with a squeeze of fresh lime juice. This corn on the cob is just so flavorful, and the recipe is easily increased to feed a crowd.

Grilled Mexican Street Corn

I like to start by grilling the corn in just the inner layer of the husks, then finish it off with the husks removed. Summer corn is so sweet and juicy and cooking it initially in the husks keeps it from drying out.

Once the corn picks up a bit of color, slather it with the cotija cheese mixture and squeeze fresh lime juice over the corn. Finish with a sprinkle of cheese, chili powder and fresh cilantro.
