Ingredients
4 ears of corn
3 Tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbs fresh cilantro, chopped fine
1 lime, juice and zest
1/2 to 1 tsp chipotle powder, to taste
1/2 tsp salt

  1. Remove the outer husks of the corn and discard. Pull back remaining husks, leaving them intact, and remove the silks. Bring the husks back up around the corn. Place the corn in a baking dish and cover with water. Let soak for 1 hour.
  2. Heat a grill to medium-high. Rub the corn and husks with vegetable oil. Place the corn on the grill and cook, while turning, for about 3 minutes per side. Turn if husks begin to burn. When corn is tender, remove from the grill.
