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. I’ve also made Mexican-Style Grilled Corn that can be cooked on the grill or in 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.
