Mexican Street Corn Dog

Makes 4

Hot dogs and corn on the cob are two of our favorite summer foods and are paired together in this take on Mexican street corn.

  • 2 ears corn, shucked
  • Olive oil, for brushing corn
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 hot dogs
  • Mayonnaise
  • 4 buns
  • ¾ cup grated cotija cheese
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, thinly sliced

1. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Brush the ears of corn with olive oil and season them with salt and pepper. Add to the grill along with the hot dogs.

2. Cook, rotating corn and hot dogs occasionally, until charred and cooked, 7 to 10 minutes.

3. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut kernels off corn cobs and combine in a bowl with cheese and cilantro. Smear mayonnaise on buns, top with hot dogs, corn mixture and slices of jalapeno pepper.
