Mexican Street Corn

1/2 cup sour cream
2 T minced fresh cilantro
2 tsp fresh lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp ancho chile powder
1 tsp kosher salt
4 large ears of corn, husks and silk removed, stalks left intact
1 T olive oil
1/2 tsp ground black pepper


Preheat a gas grill to medium-high heat. (Or for a charcoal grill, light a large chimney starter filled with 6 qt of charcoal and distribute lit coals in a single layer on grill bottom.) In small bowl, whisk together sour cream, cilantro, lime juice, garlic, chile powder, and 1/2 tsp salt; set aside. Rub corn with olive oil, remaining 1/2 tsp salt, and pepper. Grill over direct heat, turning frequently, until well browned all over, 7 to 10 minutes. Working with about 1/2 of the sour cream mixture, baste the top side of the corn, flip, and quickly baste the bottom side. Remove corn from heat and serve, passing remaining sour cream mixture separately.
