Heat grill and clean grates once it has heated.

Whisk together the sauce: In a bowl whisk together the crema, mayonnaise, cilantro, garlic, pepper, lime juice and hot sauce to taste and add salt if needed. Set aside.

Place the corn directly onto the hot grill grates. Grill the corn for about 3 minutes or until kernels begin to turn golden brown and look charred. Turn over and repeat. When all sides are browned, remove from the grill onto a plate.

Top corn with sauce and cheese. Using a spoon or brush coat each ear of corn with the cream mixture. Sprinkle with crumbled cheese and serve with lime wedges.
