Life in a Northern Town

Grilled Corn & Crema Mexicana

What could possibly make the Corn Man's sweet corn even better? Crema mexicana and queso fresco, that's what. My brother, Tom, has turned me on to lots of things: oysters at the Oceanaire, good music, MAC knives and now, crema mexicana with chipotle power. Brushing grilled corn with spiced crema and coating it with queso fresco is my new favorite thing.

Spiced Crema Mexicana & Queso Fresco

1/2 cup crema mexicana (I used Cacique) 1/2 tsp chipotle powder 1/2 tsp Tajin Classico Seasoning 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped 1/2 cup ques0 fresco, crumbled salt and pepper to taste

Mix everything but the queso fresco in bowl until combined. Add salt and/or pepper if necessary. Brush crema on corn immediately after it comes off the grill and sprinkle queso on all sides of the corn.
