Once you try this zesty corn recipe from south of the border, you may never go back to basic salt and butter. Just spread one tablespoon of mayonnaise over corn kernels, then sprinkle queso fresco over mayonnaise.

Please restore the "SAVE" button. How can I get back to this recipe? Also, please put back the option to look at past shows with the links to each recipe and craft as you have done in the past. What happened to that feature?

This was amazing. Creamed corn on a stick. I put out cilantro, cumin and pasilla for those that don't want heat. BTW I grilled the com. I want to use my grill as long as I can :) Once I'm forced indoors, I'll grill them on the stove!

Hi Martha ! If you are ever in Portland ( ME ) stoop by a great place called "El Rayo" a great taco joint that serves "Mexican Corn !" Yum. Your idea about cooking the corn in the husks is wonderful, makes all the difference ! Thanks !
