For my version of Mexican street corn, I roll the ears in crushed chips. For extra pizzazz, try different chip flavors like ranch dressing and jalapeno. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chips
  • 6 medium ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • Lime wedges

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Refrigerate, covered, until serving. Place tortilla chips in a shallow bowl. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat 15-20 minutes or until tender, turning occasionally.
When cool enough to handle, spread corn with mayonnaise mixture; roll in chips. Grill corn, covered, 1-2 minutes longer or until lightly browned. Serve with lime wedges. Yield: 6 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • This is messy (in the best way!) but can be made into a colorful, party-friendly dish with a few easy steps. Simply cut grilled corn off the cob, toss with the mayonnaise mixture, and serve in portion cups topped with crushed chips and lime wedges.
  • If you are sensitive to spice, omit the cayenne pepper or sub in sweet paprika.
