RECIPE: Mexican Grilled Corn

A photo of this corn has been in my Facebook page cover photo for a while now but I keep forgetting to share the recipe! I've made it 4 times since discovering the recipe earlier this summer. Is there any other way to eat corn? Nope!

fresh ears of corn, husks removed
olive oil
salt + pepper
parmesan cheese, finely grated
garlic powder
cayenne pepper
lime wedges

Drizzle corn cobs with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill until corn is lightly brown or blackened just enough for the kernels to cook. Lightly brush each cob with mayo, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and paprika to taste. Sprinkle cayenne pepper conservatively depending on how spicy you want your corn! Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over corn.

Note: I didn't put any measurements here, because I prefer to season the corn to taste. If you're serving a crowd, set up the toppings and let them season their own corn.
