Grilled Mexican Street Corn

I look forward to summer for many reasons, but I also appreciate that corn on the cob is in season! You can have a fresh side dish for pennies since a fresh ear of corn is so affordable. It also pairs nicely with anything you can think of: burgers, chicken, as a salad topping. I love using fresh corn on the cob on the grill, and we try to get creative with our toppings.

To add a bit of flair to regular corn, we like to prepare each ear inside a foil pack with mayonnaise and seasoned salt. We then top each ear with feta cheese, cilantro, and any additional seasonings to taste. I looked for Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil and Black Pepper. It offers a flavor that doesn’t need any additional salt or pepper. It is a one-stop condiment! Feta cheese and fresh vegetables were also on my shopping list. I stocked up on fresh corn for about 33 cents an ear!

I also grabbed a rotisseries chicken for a simple entree. Once you have all of your ingredients for the perfect lunch and side dish, it’s time to fire up the grill.

I use foil to wrap each ear in before placing over the fire.

Cilantro Corn


When the corn is finished (I love mine slightly charred!), I add additional Kraft Mayo, cilantro, and seasoned salt.

I then gently roll the corn into feta cheese crumbles. The flavor combination is unreal!
