Grilled Mexican Corn with Crema

A unique twist on a traditional corn on the cob side dish. This dish is similar to street fare found in Mexico. If you can’t find crema Mexicana, swap it out with low-fat sour cream.


1 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
6 ears corn
Cooking spray
1/4 cup crema Mexicana
6 lime wedges

1. Prepare grill.
2. Combine first 3 ingredients.
3. Place corn on a grill rack coated with cooking spray and cook 12 minutes or until corn is lightly browned – turning frequently.
4. Place corn on a platter and drizzle with crema. Sprinkle with chipotle mixture and garnish with lime wedges.

  1. This looks so yummy! I haven’t had any corn on the cob yet this season, and I’ve been wanting to try Mexican street style corn!
