This was one of my most favorite things I have made all summer!  Perfect for a bbq!!

2015-corn

  • 1 (16 oz) bag frozen corn (or 3-4 cups fresh corn)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 3-4 oz Cotija cheese, crumbled (I found this over in the specialty cheese section of the grocery store, but you could also use feta cheese)
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (fresh is my favorite)
  • 1 tablespoon jalapeno peppers, finely chopped
  • ⅓ cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Heat oil over medium heat. Add frozen corn and let cook until corn starts to char, stirring occasionally (it took about 7-8 minutes before my corn was lightly charred).
  2. While the corn is cooking, mix together mayonnaise, cheese, lime juice, cilantro, red onion, garlic, chili powder, and salt and pepper in a large bowl. When corn is done, gently fold it in with other ingredients.
  3. Serve immediately and store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
