Grilled Corn with Chipotle Cream goes wonderfully with chimichangas, fajitas, or tacos. Or serve it at your next summer cookout. If serving as part of a Mexican meal, you could sprinkle some queso fresco or cotija cheese on the corn for more deliciousness. Then it would be perfect for Cinco de Mayo.

The chipolte cream is a cinch to make. It’s just a mixture of mayonnaise, sour cream, lime juice, a little milk, chipotle peppers plus some adobo sauce from the Chipotle Peppers. You can change the ratio of mayonnaise to sour cream or use all mayo or all sour cream. Any way you do it, it’s going to turn out delicious.
