Mexican-style grilled corn

Updated: Mar 6, 2023

Corn is one of my favourite summer vegetables to grill. I was looking for a recipe for a Mexican-themed meal, and I could not find anything. Every recipe I looked at seemed blah!

So I went to the kitchen and started playing with flavours, every Mexican flavour I could think of. I started by deciding on mayo, instead of butter, and then added a bunch of flavours and spices typical to the cuisine. here is the result, it turned out superb. Creamy, tart and cheesy, this dressing has a ton of great flavour.

Also, check out the recipe for Indian-style grilled corn.

For about 6 corn.


1/4 cup mayonnaise

2 teaspoons lime juice

Generous pinch of Mexican oregano

1 tablespoon finely diced Mexican-style pickled onions or jalapeños

I tablespoon of finely grated Mexican cheese blend

1/2 teaspoon Mexican chilli powder, chipotle, Ancho, or pasilla

1 tablespoon cilantro, finely diced

Salt to taste

6 ears of corn, shucked

Mix all the ingredients together. taste for salt, sour, and spice and adjust as needed.

Roast the corn directly over burning hot coals or on a very hot grill, charring the kernels. When the corn is evenly charred, spread the dressing over the corn while still hot to melt the cheese. Enjoy.
