  1. Heat grill to 400℉.

  2. Whisk together the crema, mayonnaise, cilantro, garlic, chipotle pepper, lime zest and lime juice. Taste and season the mixture with salt if desired. Set aside.

  3. Place husked corn directly onto grill. Grill for about 3 minutes, undisturbed, or until kernels turn golden and look charred. Turn over and repeat. Once all sides are browned, remove from grill.
