For you gringos out there, that translates to: This Mexican street corn is a party in your mouth. We promise you’ll love it. Plus, it’s easy enough to prepare on your boat.


4 ears corn, husked
2 Tbsp. olive oil
½ cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 cup crumbled cotija or feta or grated
Parmesan cheese
1 lime, quartered


Heat grill to medium. Rub corn with oil, place on grill (or roast at 400°F in oven for 30-40 minutes) and turn so all sides are charred (about 10 minutes).

Combine remaining ingredients except for cheese and lime. Remove corn from grill. When cooled, brush with mayonnaise mixture and roll in cheese for authentic Mexican Street Corn.

Squeeze limes over corn.
