This Grilled Mexican Street Corn is perfect for a party with friends and family. This version is just as good as the kind I got from street vendors in Mexico. When I serve this at parties, there’s never any left.

Recipe Notes

  • Sprinkle over the cotija if you want a lighter coating (rather than rolling).
  • Add chili powder to taste. Some people like a lot, while others like just a few dashes.
