There's nothing better than sweet corn in the summer. This recipe envelopes those delicious kernels with creamy Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise, cojita cheese, fresh lime, chili pepper and cilantro. The perfect side for a 4th of July feast.


  • 4 ears of corn (remove the silks, then pull the husks back over)
  • 1/2 cup Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup grated cojita cheese
  • Chili powder, to taste
  • Handful of chopped fresh cilantro
  • Lime wedges


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F
  2. Place corn directly on the oven rack. Roast for 30-35 minutes
  3. Once corn has cooled enough to touch, peel back the husks
  4. Top each ear of corn with 2 tablespoons of Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise
  5. Sprinkle each ear of corn with about 2 tablespoons each of cojita cheese then top with chili powder and fresh cilantro
  6. Finish with a squeeze of lime. Enjoy while still warm
