Info on corn/mayo street food?

I was in the downtown Los Angeles fashion district last weekend and noticed a lot of people eating a corn mixture out of styrofoam bowls. Curious to try it, I ordered a bowl from one of the vendors. It's a scoop of canned corn, a hefty dollop of mayo, a couple tablespoons of cheese, some chili powder and a squirt of yellowish sauce (maybe some kind of butter substitue?). People were mixing it altogether and eating it like a soup since the liquid from the corn makes it a sort of watery. What's the name for this? Where does it originate? What's the yellowish sauce? thanks!

For those curious, I liked it but the mayo was made it rich enough that it was hard to finish the whole bowl.
