Fire up the grill this summer for this grilled Mexican street corn – an easy gluten-free summer grilling recipe!


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. lime juice
  • 5 ears of corn
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 cup cotija cheese – crumbled


  1. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, salt, cumin, and lime juice. Stir to combine.
  2. Preheat grill to medium heat. Remove the husks and silk from each ear of corn. Place corn on the grill and grill for 2 minutes on each side – continually turning until it has a uniformed color. (about 6-8 minutes)
  3. Remove corn from grill. Using a pastry brush, spread the cream sauce over each ear of corn heavily. Then, squeeze one half of a lime over the corn. Sprinkle with the chili powder, chopped cilantro, and cotija cheese. Serve immediately.


  • You can grill with the corn husks and silk intact. If so, soak the husks in water for 15 minutes to 1 hour prior to grilling to avoid the husks catching fire.
