  • 2 ears of corn 360 g
  • 1/4 cup of diced red onion 50 g
  • 1 tbs 15 g chipotle cream (if you don't have this on hand, you could just substitute 1 tbs of fat free sour cream or low fat mayo... plus additional chili powder to taste. But you won't regret keeping it on hand for just about EVERYTHING.)
  • 1 tbs 15 g cotija (can sub feta or parmesan if you don't have it.)
  • 1 lime juiced
  • Handful of chopped cilantro
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp Trader Joes Chili Lime Seasoning or regular chili powder (the truth is I just sprinkle both of these on until it tastes good.
  • A good pinch of kosher salt and pepper


  • Cook corn however you prefer- I love to just microwave it in the husks-- 2-3 cobs at a time for about 4 minutes.  Let rest for a few minutes, then husk and slice corn off the cob.  Grilling would be delicious if you're up to the task!
  • In a bowl, combine corn, red onion, chipotle cream, cotija (maybe save a little to sprinkle on top at the end), juice from one whole lime, cilantro, garlic powder, chili lime seasoning, and salt and pepper.
  • Top with any extra cotija and cilantro for garnish and serve on top of tostadas, tacos, nachos etc! Or even over greens as a salad... it would be amazing with this cilantro lime ranch.
