1 cup crushed spicy cheese puffs

1 cup crushed salted toasted corn kernels, such as Corn Nuts 

1 cup crushed nacho-flavored tortilla chips (or chips such as Pringles) 

4 ears corn, husked 

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

Lime wedges, for spritzing


  1. Prepare a grill for medium-high heat. Meanwhile, on a long tray, arrange the crushed cheese puffs, corn kernels and tortilla chips in rows.
  2. Place the corn over the direct heat of the grill and cook, rotating, until there are grill marks on all sides, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Brush each ear of corn all over with the mayonnaise, then roll in the snacks to coat. Spritz with lime juice and serve warm.
