4 cobs of corn

4 Tbsp. fat free mayonnaise

1/2 cup cotija, queso blanco, feta, Romano or Parmesan cheese, grated
(We used Parmesan cheese.)

2 tsp. chili powder

1 lime, cut into 4 wedges

This was sent to us from a friend who came from Mexico. She talked about how her mother used to make it as a treat. Cook it up our way and you'll get all the flavor and satisfaction without the large percentage of fat found in the original.

1. Clean the corn by removing the outer layers (husk) and corn silk. Leave the ends on for a handle.

2. Put the cobs in a baking pan and put under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, then rotate and repeat until they're lightly toasted all around. You shouldn't have to cook them more than about 10 minutes total.

3. Once they're cooked, do this to each corn cob. Quickly coat with 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, then sprinkle 2 tablespoons of cheese, followed by 1/2 a teaspoon of chili powder lightly dusted over each corn cob.

4. Serve with a 1/4 wedge of lime for each corn cob that can be squeezed over the top before eating.
