First, let me welcome you to our Progressive Summertime dinner party!

This post & recipe is one of many in the progressive dinner that you’ll see listed below.  We also have an amazing giveaway (also at the end of this post) sponsored by KitchenAid, Cost Plus World Market, and the brand spakin’ new Woot Froot!

Here’s what you’ll need to make Mexican Queso HOT Corn:

ingredients for Mexican Queso HOT Corn via Nest of Posies


  • 4 corn cobs, husked
  • spray oil or some olive oil
  • 1/4 cup mayonaise
  • 1 cup queso (crumbled Mexican Cheese)
  • Ancho Chili Powder, to taste
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Cilantro leaves, to garnish

The unique thing about corn is that you can cook it so many ways.  But my absolute favorite way is to grill it.  However, our grill is not hooked up yet, so I used the next best thing!  An iron skillet!  It did make the house a little smokey, but the flavor was just as good.  Mix your mayo & queso together in a bowl.  If you have to have corn on the cob with butter, you can definitely add some as well.

 Once you are done grilling or making it in the skillet, add your mayo & queso mixture to your corn.

Then sprinkle your Ancho Chili Powder on top of your corn & queso mixture, add a squirt or a lot of lime & I highly recommend the cilantro.  But for those of you who may not know, I am a Cilantro fanatic!   You can never have enough Cilantro!

This I can assure you will be an added side to your weekly meals.  It’s soooo good!
