TOTAL TIME

INGREDIENTS

    • Olive oil
    • 2 ears of corn, husked
    • Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper
    • 1 small red onion, cut into 1/4″-thick rings
    • 1 pound halloumi or other grilling cheese, sliced into 16 planks (about 1/2″-thick)
    • 8 small corn tortillas
    • Sliced avocado, fresh tomato salsa, cilantro, and lime wedges (for serving)

PREPARATION

    1. Prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat; generously oil grates.
    2. Lightly brush corn with oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss onion with oil in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper. Grill both, turning often, until tender and charred in spots, 10–15 minutes for corn and 4–5 minutes for onions. Let corn cool slightly. Cut kernels from cobs and transfer to a medium bowl.
    3. Brush cheese with oil, season with salt and pepper, and grill, turning once, until charred and warmed through, about 2 minutes per side.
    4. Warm tortillas in a microwave or on cooler area of grill until soft and pliable. Divide cheese among tortillas, then top with corn, onion, avocado, salsa, and cilantro. Serve with lime wedges alongside.
