  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until kernels are slightly charred, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool until safe to handle, at least 15 minutes. Remove kernels from the cobs to get about 2 cups of corn.
  3. Mix cream, butter, lime juice, ancho chile seasoning, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl. Fold in cotija cheese. Drizzle mixture over the corn kernels. Serve hot or cold.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can substitute grated Parmesan cheese or a mild feta for the cotija cheese, if desired.
