Wow, I just had no idea how much we would both love this Mexican charred corn hot dog. It has such a wonderful combination of tastes, from the bite of the onion, to that great sweetness you get from roasted corn, fantastic citrus lime mayonnaise, all served over a grilled all-beef hot dog. Topped with crumbled Cotija cheese! These dogs were an absolute treat!

Mexican Charred Corn Hot Dog

Mexican charred corn hot dogs are light and refreshing, the perfect dogs for a sunny day. If fresh corn-on-the-cob is no longer available in your area, you can use canned or frozen corn kernels. Drain them first and pat dry so that they roast well. Pour the kernels out onto a baking sheet and place under the broiler just long enough for them to start to char. It won’t take long, so don’t walk away and ignore them. Give them a stir or two as they roast to make sure they are charred evenly.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
