In a medium size saute pan on high heat ad in the olive oil and sear the corn until it is lightly browned. Finish the corm by stirring in the mayonnaise, chili powder, cotijia, salt and pepper.

To Serve:
place some sliced beef inside of a corn tortilla shell and top off with some shredded cabbage, roasted peppers and onions, avocado cream, corn elotes, sliced green onions and cilantro leaves.
