Steps

Step 1: Steaming the Corn

• 4 fresh corn on the cob

Method

To prepare the corn, peel off the husk and remove the silk hairs.

Set up a steamer. Fill with one inch of water and place over medium-high heat.

Once the water is simmering, place the corn into the steaming basket and set over top of the steamer. Cover with a lid and steam until done, about 10 minutes or so.

Note: The corn can also be grilled, if desired.

Step 2: Dressing the Corn

• 4 sturdy, wooden skewers
• 1 tsp chili powder (or to taste)
• 1/2 cup queso fresco (or feta cheese)
• 1 fresh lime

Method

Once the corn has finished steaming and is tender, insert a wooden skewer through the core of each cob.

While still hot, use a pastry brush to coat each cob liberally with mayonnaise. Sprinkle with crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese and chili powder. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over top and serve immediately.

    This is one of those treats that I simply tend to forget about. I'm glad to have come upon this as I plan on making it tonight. I'm thinking on doing it on the grill to give it that authentic taste/flavor. Thanks for posting!
