Smoked Mexican corn is easy to prepare with just a few simple ingredients. For this recipe, we decided to add even more delicious smoke flavor by cooking the corn inside of an Alder grilling wrap. Alder wood has a delicate, earth smoke flavor that pairs especially well with vegetables.

Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 (or 8 corn lollipops)


  • 4 Alder Grilling Wraps
  • 4 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1/4 cup Mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup Feta or Cotija Cheese
  • 2 Tbsp. Cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 Lime
  • Salt & Pepper

Chef's Tip

For easier serving and eating,
cut the corn into shorter pieces
and pierce with a flat Cedar skewer
to make corn-lollipops!


  1. Soak the Alder Wraps in water for 5 minutes.
  2. Preheat grill to 400°F.
  3. Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, cilantro, feta (or cotija) cheese, salt and pepper and juice from half of the lime. Brush on shucked corn.
  4. Place seasoned corn on Alder wraps, parallel to the grain of the wood, and secure with natural twine.
  5. Add wrapped food to grill and close the grill lid, cooking for 15 minutes (or until corn is soft).
  6. When done, remove from grill and serve with more crumbled feta cheese, cilantro and lime juice.
  7. Enjoy!
