Corn Sticks with White Cheese and Cilantro

  • Yield 4 to 6 servings

It is easier to use pre-husked corn, which comes in yellow, white or my favorite variety, bi-color. Many brands of white cheese are available in the dairy section of supermarkets.


4 ears sweet corn, cut in half, silks and husks removed
8 (9-inch) wooden skewers or chopsticks
1/2 cup low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise
2 cups coarsely grated white cheese (queso blanco)
1 cup chopped cilantro


  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add corn and cook 10 minutes or until tender. Drain and cool to room temperature. Stick a skewer or chopstick into the end of each corn half to form a handle.
  2. Brush each cob of corn with mayonnaise. Place cheese on a plate and cilantro on another plate. Roll corn evenly in cheese, then cilantro. Season with salt and pepper. Serve at room temperature.
