Whisk together the sauce:

In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, mayonnaise, cilantro, garlic, chipotle pepper, lime zest and lime juice.

Taste and season the mixture with salt. Set aside.

Grill the corn:

Heat a gas or charcoal grill to 400°F (200°C).

Place the corn directly onto the grill. Grill the corn for about 3 minutes, undisturbed, or until kernels begin to turn golden brown and look charred.

Turn them over and repeat.

When all sides are browned, remove from the grill onto a plate.

Top the corn with sauce and Canadian cheese:

Using a brush or a spoon, coat each ear of corn with the sour cream mixture. Sprinkle with crumbled feta cheese.

Sprinkle with additional chipotle pepper, if desired.

Serve with extra lime wedges.
