  • 6 ears of fresh corn on the cob
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 4 ounces Cotija cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • red chili powder, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • wedges of fresh lime
  • fresh cilantro for garnish

Directions:
Heat your grill to high.

Put mayonnaise, cilantro and lime wedges into separate bowls.

Crumble the Cotija cheese on a plate and set aside.

Mix crumbled bacon into the butter and set aside.

Remove corn husks, and brush each corn cob with olive oil and a dash of pepper. Wrap each ear in aluminum foil.

Grill each side for about 20-25 minutes total, turning corn every 5 minutes or so to make sure the whole cob is properly cooked.

Once corn is finished, pull it off the grill, and set aside to cool for about 5 minutes.

Lightly brush each cob with the bacon butter, or mayonnaise, as desired.

Dust lightly with salt, and chili powder, as desired.

Then roll each cob as desired in Cotija.

Top with fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges.
