Delicious! Chili and lime are the new salt and pepper! The mayonnaise reminds me of the Mexican street corn, so good.

Street corn at home! I was also skeptical, since we usually do just grilled corn so it felt different to slather the corn. I topped it with a sprinkle of lime juice. This was so simple!

I was skeptical that it would have that street corn taste to it but I was pleasantly surprised. I'd definitely make this again. also earns major points for how easy it is.

We are big fans of corn on the cob in this house. May be unfair to compare this to the stuff we get at the roasted corn stand, but the chili powder didn't entirely work for us. Made a second batch with chipotle chili powder that was much tastier. Also dressed it with a little Parmesan cheese, because that is how we roll. Delicious. Full marks for the technique, but we wanted a little "more."
