Corn on the cob is one of those street foods that's really trendy right now, and one of the most popular ways to serve it is in a style known as Mexican Street Corn. In our version, we slather corn on the cob with butter before topping with a bit of chili powder, cilantro, Cotija cheese, and a squeeze of lime. It's tasty!
What You'll Need
- 8 ears of fresh corn, in the husk
- 6 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
- 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/4 cup grated cotija cheese
- Juice of 2 limes
What to Do
- Place corn with husks on in cold water, submerging completely; soak 15 minutes. Preheat grill to medium-high heat. Remove corn from water, shake off excess water, place around edges of grill or over indirect heat, and cover.
- Cook 15 to 20 minutes, or until kernels are tender.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine butter, chili powder, and cilantro. Remove corn from heat and carefully remove husks and silk.
- Brush butter mixture evenly over corn, sprinkle with cheese, and drizzle with lime juice. Serve immediately.
Here's another option: You can husk and boil the corn and dress it up as shown above, or roast it directly on the rack in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or so.
