Street vendors across Mexico sell this style of roasted or grilled corn—topped with mayonnaise, chili powder and Cotija cheese. You can serve the unadorned corn on a platter with small bowls of the sauce, cheese and lime on the side so everyone can make their own.
2 tablespoons  low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons  nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon  chili powder
4 ears  corn, husked
4 tablespoons  finely shredded Cotija (see Shopping Tip) or parmesan cheese
1   lime, quartered

Tip: Shopping tip: Cotija cheese, also called queso añejo or queso añejado, is an aged Mexican cheese similar in texture and flavor to Parmesan. Find it near other specialty cheeses or in Mexican grocery stores.

Favorite Summer Corn
In Texas we love to grill and eat corn this way in the summertime, and this is a classic version of the recipe. Called "elotes", this corn can be served on or off the cob. Served on the cob, it's great to soak the husks and tie them back with kitchen twine before grilling, to make a handle for holding and eating. If you like spice, sprinkle on some Mexican-style hot sauce such as Cholula or Tapatio. Yum.
