Mexican Cotija Corn

Back when I worked at a chromatography company, I went to a tapas restaurant for lunch, and had some Mexican Corn. Unfortunately, I can remember neither the restaurant name nor the location anymore. However, I do remember the delectably yummy and flavorful Mexican Corn on the Cob. (We recently went to another restaurant, and I believe this corn is also called Elote.) Since we'd purchased some corn on sale, I thought back to the scrumptious corn I enjoyed back in what seems like another lifetime. I made this Mexican Cotija Corn in a oven, and it'll taste even better if you make it on a grill. The hardest part of making this corn was getting it to stay submerged while soaking - they just want to roll and float! I ended up using a rice cooker pot partially filled with water on top of a plate to keep the corn down. So once you've soaked the corn, drain and roast it. (Unless you're lucky and have access to a grill. Then grill the corn.) :) Once the corn's cooked, slather it with some Chipotle Mayo and roll it in some Cotija cheese. Then it's time for the best part - gobbling!

What's your favorite way to eat corn on the cob?
