  • Lime Salt:

  • Spicy Mayonnaise:
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons spicy chili sauce

Directions

Preheat a grill to medium-high heat.

For the lime salt: Add the kosher salt and lime zest to a spice grinder. Pulse a few times to combine. Set aside in a small bowl.

For the spicy mayonnaise: In a bowl, whisk the mayonnaise, chili sauce and lime juice together until combined. Set aside.

For the corn: Grill the corn until lightly charred on all sides. Cut the ears in half and transfer to a large bowl. Toss with the Monterey Jack and some of the spicy mayonnaise to coat, using more or less mayonnaise to your liking.

Stack the corn on a large plate and sprinkle with the lime salt. Garnish with lime wedges, cilantro leaves and extra cheese if you like.
