Loved it and making it for the second time
I think it's ok! I used parmesean cheese
The corn turn out great! I used crushed garlic instead of powder.

I took the silver queen corn off the cob and warmed it over the stove with a pat of butter. Then I swirled in the spiced mayo and extra cilantro. We both snarfed down the entire thing. So good, I totally forgot about the cheese. And that never happens. Ever.

This has become the number one snack in my house! I adjust the mayo paste by adding more garlic powder, adding chili powder and cayenne (we like it spicy). Either way, I'm so glad I came across this recipe!

very good instead of cotija use mexican cream or daisy cream use parmasion cheese sprinkled over. I would do it again
