I tried this at a BBQ once and it was absolutely delicious!

(Recipe from Saveur.com)

6 ears fresh sweet corn in the husk
3 tbsp. butter, melted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup queso añejo (aged cows’-milk cheese), finely crumbled
1 tbsp. powdered árbol chile

1. Put unpeeled corn in a large, deep bowl, cover with cold water, and weight with a plate to submerge. Soak corn for 30 minutes, then drain. Meanwhile, preheat a grill and adjust grill rack to 5” above heat.

2. Grill unpeeled corn over medium-hot heat, turning frequently, until outer leaves are blackened, 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat and when cool enough to handle, peel off husks and remove silk.

3. Brush peeled corn with butter, return to grill, and cook, turning frequently, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Spread each ear with some mayonnaise, roll in cheese, and sprinkle with powdered chile.

Queso añejo is a Mexican cheese made from skimmed goat’s milk or skimmed cow’s milk. Anyone tried this one from Walmart?
