Yields: 4 servings
Cook time: 20 minutes Prep time: 5 minutes


  • 1 lime
  • ⅔ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 4 ears corn on the cob, with husks
  • 1 cup Cotija cheese

  1. Using a cheese grater or lime zester, finely grate zest from lime until you have enough zest for ¼ teaspoon. Reserve lime.
  2. Combine mayonnaise, lime zest and Chipotle Adobo in food processor. Puree until uniform consistency.
  3. Preheat the grill using Kingsford® Charcoal, until briquets are consistently ashed over.

  5. Grill over medium fire for 20 minutes, turning 4 times during the cooking process.
  6. While corn is grilling, cut lime in half and place on grill outside down and cook over medium heat until nicely caramelized, 8-10 minutes.
  7. Peel husks back from corn, brush liberally with chipotle mayonnaise and sprinkle liberally with Cotija cheese. Squeeze grilled lime over corn, grind fresh black pepper over each piece and serve.
