Works for Me!

In today's edition of Works for Me Wednesday: The yummiest corn in the world! For more awesome tips and ideas, visit We Are THAT Family.

2 summers ago I discovered this recipe when at a 4th of July dinner at a friend's house. It's a very simple Mexican recipe, but to call it Mexican corn would be a shame. Our family has re-titled this recipe:

The Yummy Corn!

Shuck and grill 4 ears of corn on the cob.
Spread each ear of corn with a moderate coating of mayonnaise.
Roll in cotija cheese crumbles.
Sprinkle generously with chopped cilantro.
Enjoy!

Another option is to cut the corn off the cob (4 ears) after grilling. Toss in 3 Tbsp. mayo, 1 cup cotija cheese crumbles, and 1/2 cup chopped cilantro. Serve warm or chilled.

We still love this corn in the winter, when you can't buy fresh corn. At that point, I defrost frozen corn to use in the recipe. You can adjust the amounts of the may, cheese, and cilantro to suit your taste.

You can buy cotija cheese at Walmart. It is in the back refrigerator case, sloe to the biscuits and crescent rolls. They have a little section of Mexican cheeses there. Some Walmarts sell it as a round wheel. Our Walmart sells it as a bag of crumbles.

Happy summer, and enjoy!
