Mexican Corn on the cob.

Hey guys, I'm so sorry I haven't posted this past week.  I'm back and will be posting on my regular schedule.

Memorial day had my grill overloaded with the typical brats, dogs, burgers, and steaks, but nothing was more memorable than grilled Mexican corn.

I first learned of this dish from a friend of mine who lived in a Mexican neighborhood and used to buy these from street vendors.

Here is what you will need:

1. Fresh sweet corn, the more the merrier.
2. Mayonnaise
3. Butter
4. Paprika
5. Good quality crumbled dry parmesian cheese. (If you have a Mexican grocery store near you get the traditional cotija instead)

I use these because they are fun, but not necessary.

These are really simple to assemble, just grill up the desired amount of corn and get rid of the husks, now load those bad boys into your cute little corn trays and liberally load on the butter, then do the same with the mayo. now load on your cheese and finish with paprika.

You may be saying, "Dude, that sounds crazy." Well so did I.  Believe me these are delicious. Please enjoy one or 4 this weekend.

  21. I've had these before, they are good! Except I don't put mayonnaise on anything! I usually just eat them without anything on them though, the grilled corn by itself is amazing.
