mexican baked corn

Have you ever had this corn at the fair? Or maybe from a street vendor. It is so good... My husband didn't think it was spicy enough (nothing is ever spicy enough for him!) I thought it was perfect and went great with our BBQ chicken.

Since corn is in season, it is great to have a couple different ways to prepare it!

Mexican Baked Corn

4 white corn cobs (dehusked and cut off the ends)
juice from a lime
paprika seasoning
cayenne or red chili powder
parmesean cheese

Place the corn in a piece of foil, big enough to wrap around one corn cob. Add a splash of lime juice with a few shakes of each of the seasonings, a palm full of parmasean cheese and 2 tbsp mayo. Spread the mixture all over the corn. (this might get messy!)
Wrap up the corn tightly, and bake in 425* oven for 25-30 or on the grill on high, turning a few times.


  1. Looks fantastic!! Definitely giving this a try in the near future!!! :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I'm assuming this'll work using yellow corn? I live here in Brooklyn, NY and I've never seen any white corn ever...but it looks so good I'm going to try it out with yellow corn. This is great. Thanks.

  3. My family are purists when it comes to sweet corn - but I think they need a little shaking up! I'd love to try this!
