  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 jalapeño, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup crumbled cotija cheese (or feta cheese)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend


  1. Prepare the Corn: Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the corn and cook, stirring occasionally, until the corn is lightly charred, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Add Flavor: Reduce the heat to medium. Add the diced jalapeño and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until the jalapeño is softened and fragrant.
  3. Mix the Base: In a large mixing bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, cotija cheese, chopped cilantro, lime juice, chili powder, and smoked paprika. Mix well to combine.
  4. Combine Everything: Add the cooked corn mixture to the bowl and stir until everything is well incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Add Cheese: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Transfer the mixture to an oven-safe baking dish. Sprinkle the shredded Mexican cheese blend evenly over the top.
  6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  7. Serve: Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly. Serve warm with tortilla chips, fresh vegetables, or toasted bread.
