Delicious Sriracha Cheese Grilled Corn

I love Mexican street-style corn. It’s salty, bursting with flavor, slightly sweet, and so fun to eat – the perfect summer side dish.

If you love corn on the cob, you need to try street-style grilled corn! It’s so easy and full of flavor – and makes the perfect side at a party! This corn on the cob has a ton of spicy flavor from Sriracha and cotija – which pair perfectly with the naturally sweet corn flavor, and compliment the nice smoky flavor you get from grilling the corn in their husks.

Depending on how spicy you like your corn, you can either drizzle the sriracha directly onto the corn (for a spicier kick) or mix it in with the garlic butter for a more subtle, smoky twist.

How to Make Spicy Cheesy Grilled Corn

First you will need to assemble the following ingredients:

  • Corn – I love getting this from my local farmers market when its in season, crisp and sweet.
  • Garlic Powder – garlic gives a very strong potent flavor.
  • Butter – butter is perfect for getting a rich flavor.
  • Sriracha – this gives a wonderful spice to it.
  • Cotija – creamy cheese is so nice crumbled over cooked corn.

Once you have assembled the ingredients use this method

Prep the corn. Peel the husks pack and remove the silk strings. Pull the husks back over the corn and soak the corn in water for about 10 minutes.

Grill. Heat the grill to high. Add the corn and cook turning every few minutes until corn is soft to the touch. Remove the husks.

Prepare seasoning. Mix the butter and garlic powder in a bowl. Slather the corn with that.

Top and serve. Top with a drizzle of sriracha and crumbled cotija cheese. Enjoy!
