Default Mexican Street Corn on the Cob recipe?

Having family in for the wife's graduation. Gonna do ribs, chicken, the works.

I thought it would be fun to do Mexican street corn, anyone have recipes?

I want to grill the whole corn on the cob and leave some stalk on, make it real purdy.

I'm not sure how close it was to Mexican Street corn, but I did some fresh corn last night. I cooked over the fire until charred in several spots then brushed on a mixture of mayo, sour cream, chipotle chili powder, cilantro, and parmesan cheese(only cheese I had). The wife and kids devoured it.

Wow, sounds good. Do you take any pics of such delicacies by chance?

Cacique brand Crema Mexicana, Cacique brand Queso Fresco and Tajin spice. Spread the cream on the cob, sprinkle with queso fresco and sprinkle Tajin all over.

I peel back the husks and remove the silk but leave the husks attached at the bottom. I then smear butter and spices on the corn, put the husks back in place and secure with a piece of thin wire. Before putting them on the grill I spray the husk with water - this will create some steam on the grill. The corn itself does not get as charred with this method (which may be what you are looking for) but very tender and tasty. When they come off the grill the peeled back husks make for a nice handle.

Tajin is one of the secrets to good street corn

Prep the corn.
Baste corn with cream cheese.
Grind some salt onto corn.
Sprinkle with red chile powder.(chimayo red is the best. If you can't find that use Gephardt chile powder)
Wrap and roast.

Sounds good.
For how long?
How do you know when it's done.
Thanks

Medium grill 15-20 minutes with husk. The corn will be tender when it's done.

Its done when the husk are charred on all sides. You will have to turn it a few times. Dont put directly over heat for too long or you will burn the corn. I usually put mine on the top rack with a pit around 300.

As for the recipe, im no help.

This is my favorite way, but soak the corn for several hours or overnight.

First to be authentic you use white corn. Not our yellow sweet corn most are used to although you can use it just fine! Different texture and flavor but still delicious.

White corn on the cob
Queso fresco crumbled finely
Butter or Caceque crema (not as fancy or hard to find as it sounds. its just a thick cream)
salt
Chili powder of your choice
Valentina sauce
Limes

All of those can be found at most normal grocery stores

Cook corn til your preferred tenderness. Coat in butter, salt, cream or mayo, queso fresco, chili powder, valentina and then squeeze of lime. Make sure there lots of napkins lol.
