Serves 10 to 12

For the corn:
10 to 12 cobs fresh corn, husked and silks removed
Crushed ice
To garnish:
2 cups mayonnaise
2 cups Cotija cheese, finely crumbled
Cayenne pepper, to taste
10 to 12 lime wedges


Warm the corn. Set a slow cooker to high for 20 minutes to preheat. Wrap each cob in aluminum foil with a pinch of crushed ice at the ends. Stack the corn in the slow cooker and cover. Change the setting to low then cook and keep warm for 2-4 hours.
Garnish and serve. Unwrap each cob and insert a dowel/stick into the center of the cob and push it halfway through. To garnish, use a brush to slather the corn with mayonnaise. Then, over an empty bowl to catch what falls, sprinkle with cotija cheese, cayenne pepper to taste and a spritz of lime.
