Mexican Grilled Corn with Mayo
A beloved Mexican street food, elote features freshly grilled ears of corn slathered with mayo and topped with cotija cheese (or in this case, creamy ricotta crumbles).
Build medium-sized fire in a charcoal grill, or heat your gas grill to high. Spray your grill gate with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray.
Combine chile powder and cayenne in a small bowl.
Gently add the corn cobs to the grill, turning them occasionally. Grill the corn until they're cooked through and slightly charred, about 10 minutes.
Top each cob with a sprinkle of fresh ricotta cheese and a pinch of the chile powder mixture.
Squeeze lime over each ear of corn, and serve. Enjoy!
