Elote - Mexican Corn on the Cob

Recipe Courtesy of Sara, OBB

4 ears corn, cooked
3 T mayo
2 T sour cream
1/4-1/2 t lime zest
1/2 t fresh lime juice
1/4 t cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4 t chili powder
tiny pinch kosher salt
1 C crumbled Cotija Cheese, grated
(use fresh Parmesan or queso fresco if you can't find Cotija)

Mix the mayo and sour cream in a small bowl. Zest some of the lime zest in and then squeeze in the juice. Add the chili powder, cayenne, and salt.

When your corn is finished cooking and piping hot, use a spoon to spread on some sauce. Then roll it in the grated cheese.
