Grilled corn with cotija cheese and lime juice

This is the most simple recipe that a dear reader wrote to me about. When I posted about using cotija cheese in my taco salad she left a comment telling me that it tastes great on grilled corn drizzled with a bit of fresh lime juice. I was intrigued so I tried it right away. We ate like pigs last night I tell you, devouring our corn! It's one of the simplest yet delicious side dishes I've ever made! There was no true recipe involved.

You will need:

Fresh corn on the cob (as many as you need)
1 quartered lime to squeeze the juice over your corn
finely grated cotija cheese to sprinkle over the top of your corn.

So Simple!

I also used a wee bit of lime zest mixed into the cheese for added flavor!

Yum! Grab some corn from your local farmer's market and try it this weekend! Pin It


  1. Wish you could make that for me when I come...ha;) YUM!

  2. Looks like summer on a cob! Can't wait to try!

  3. It's one of our favorites! We add a little chili powder too. Great summer food. If you buy it from a street cart here they do mayo, cheese, chili powder & lime then it is a whole meal...or a stomach ache ha

  4. I am so ready for a good feed of corn ~ our local "corm man" showed up just last week. He parks in his van and has the best corn ever ~ he is a welcome site each and every year. Hope you had a great week-end sweetie and that the sun is shining on the left coast this week. xo

  5. Lissa, wow that looks to good to eat!
    Happy day!

  6. I can't wait to try this sometime after our farmer's market trip this weekend!

  7. I didn't find that cheese at Trader Joes...
    I'll head to Whole Foods and look for it there....

    We love grilled corn at our I'll definitely have to try it.
