You can also shuck the corn for a salad version for easier serving. Just cook the corn kernels in a bit of olive oil, then allow to cool and toss with the cheese mixture and toppings. If you don't have Mexican crema you can use sour cream and if you can't find Mexican Cotija cheese, you can use a some feta or even parmesan cheese.
In a bowl, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, cheese, smoked paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, cilantro, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
Brush melted butter on the corn. Season corn with salt and pepper, to taste. Heat grill and cook corn, rotating occasionally, until cooked through and charred, about 5-7 minutes depending on how hot your grill is.
Transfer corn to a platter and spoon cheese mixture over the corn. Sprinkle with extra cheese, paprika or chili powder, green onions and/or chopped cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.
