Grilled Corn with Sour Cream and Cotija Cheese

Tender grilled corn on the cob is a must at any backyard barbecue.

  • prep: 15 mins
    total time: 25 mins
  • servings: 4




  • 4 ears corn, silks removed, husks left attached
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cotija or feta cheese (1 ounce)
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Step 1

    Wrap each ear of corn with a 2-inch band of foil to keep husks in place. Soak corn in a large bowl of cold water, 10 minutes. Remove from water, shaking off excess. Grill corn directly over heat source, turning often, until husks are charred and kernels are tender, 8 to 10 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Transfer corn to a platter. Peel back husks and spread sour cream over cobs with a butter knife. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and paprika. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve immediately.

    This is just "verylicious", all my family loved it and specially my little nephews!! Just like "elotes locos" from El Salvador but healthier! Thanks!

    Wow! This is really great. Next time I will not add additional salt, as the cotija was salty enough for my taste.
