Want to elevate standard grilled corn to a new level? This spicy treat has the added benefits of healthy oils and cheese.


Oil for brushing (coconut oil is especially healthy and adds a new taste treat)

1 tsp. chili powder

½ tsp. cayenne pepper

8 ears fresh green corn, husked

1/4 cup mayonnaise or butter or coconut oil

½ cup crumbled Cotija cheese, Parmesan, or dry ricotta cheese

1 lime cut into wedges.


Brush grate with oil over a medium hot charcoal fire or high heat gas grill. Combine chili powder and cayenne in a small bowl.

Grill corn, turning occasionally until cooked through and lightly charred, about 10 minutes. Remove from grill and immediately brush each ear with 1-1/2 tsp. mayonnaise. Sprinkle each with 1 Tbsp. cheese and a pinch of chili powder mixture. Squeeze 1 lime wedge over each ear and serve.
