Mexican Grilled Corn

From: EatingWell

Street vendors across Mexico sell this style of roasted or grilled corn--topped with mayonnaise, chili powder and Cotija cheese. You can serve the unadorned corn on a platter with small bowls of the sauce, cheese and lime on the side so everyone can make their own.

2 tablespoons  low-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons  nonfat plain yogurt
1/2 teaspoon  chili powder
4 ears  corn, husked
4 tablespoons  finely shredded Cotija, (see Shopping Tip) or Parmesan cheese
1   lime, quartered
1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
2. Combine mayonnaise, yogurt and chili powder in a small bowl.
3. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until marked and tender, 8 to 12 minutes total. Spread each ear with 1 tablespoon of the sauce and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon Cotija (or Parmesan). Serve with lime wedges.
Shopping tip: Cotija cheese, also called queso anejo or queso anejado, is an aged Mexican cheese similar in texture and flavor to Parmesan. Find it near other specialty cheeses or in Mexican grocery stores.
