Servings 6


  • 4 cups frozen corn
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • cayenne pepper to taste (optional)
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco
  • garnish with cilantro (optional)


  • Add corn to a large dry skillet over medium heat. Cook corn until it starts to char, stir frequently as it cooks.
  • Once corn is cooked, remove from heat and add mayonnaise, lime juice, and spices. Stir until evenly distributed.
  • Top corn with queso fresco and cilantro (if desired).


  • I used 1/4 teaspoon cayenne but this might be too much heat for those sensitive to spice.
  • This dish can be enjoyed hot or cold.
