Tender roasted or grilled corn, seasoned with cheesy parmesan and spicy chipotle. This is sure to be a popular summer side dish.

Sometimes something so simple can make a world of difference. This corn becomes super addicting with the addition of some simple seasoning and cheese.

Even if you don’t normally like corn, this may change your mind. Mr. K usually doesn’t care for corn on the cob, but he approved of this recipe.

This is the perfect summer side dish for a regular meal or a BBQ party. The corn can be made either in the grill or the oven.

The corn is cooked until tender inside the husks to preserve the flavor. Then it’s cooked a few more minutes with some seasoning, butter and cheese.

The inspiration behind this recipe was the complimentary Grill Master Kit and samples I recently was sent by Urban Accents to try out. The Grill kit got me so excited that it pushed up my timeline for buying a grill from sometime in the future to must-buy-this-weekend. I am determined to become an expert griller by the end of summer.

I shared some of the dry glazes and seasonings with my brother because he will be grilling Father’s Day weekend (this kit would also make a good Father’s Day gift). Urban Accents products can be found on their website and at various stores like Whole Foods, Safeway, Sprouts, World Market.

I kept some of the seasonings for myself, which I’m waiting to use once I get my grill. I also had to keep the corn on the cob shakers, which come in Chipotle Parmesan and Spicy Chili Lime.

I especially loved the Chipotle Parmesan cob shaker and so I decided to make a version that anyone can try out, whether they have the cob shakers or not.

    This sounds like an amazing side, Kirbie! Corn on the cob reminds me of the summertime in my mother’s Western Pennsylvania hometown, and I cannot wait to make my own rendition of this because I know it’ll be amazing.
