Elote is a Mexican street food – basically corn on the cob. You may see it frequently being sold in some neighborhoods by people pushing little metal carts. I really liked having my grilled corn like this, it gave it a nice creamy flavor with a little punch. (Mr. Foodie said it was a little too creamy for his taste.) It would be a little bit rich to have your corn this way all the time, but it was a nice addition to our little weekend BBQ feast.
4 Ears of corn, still in husks but silk removed
1/4 Cup Melted Butter

1. Grill corn in husks about 15-20 minutes, turning at least once during cooking time.
2. While corn is grilling, mix melted butter, mayonaise and lime juice until well blended.
3. Remove corn from grill, remove or pull back husks and spread butter mixture onto corn.
4. Sprinkle with desired amount of chile powder and cotija cheese before serving with lime wedges.
