This is inspired by Mexican corn, flavoring corn on the cob with butter, cotjia cheese, chipotle powder and lime juice. It's a delicious summertime dish.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ears of corn partially unhusked (remove the first few layers but leave about half of them on)
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1/4 cup grated cotija cheese
  • juice of 1 lime
  • chopped cilantro optional, for garnish

Directions:

  1. Grill corn until tender, about 15 minutes. Once the corn is cooked remove the charred husks and discard.

  2. Brush each ear of corn with 1/2 tbsp butter. Sprinkle each with about 1/2 tsp chipotle powder, 1 tbsp of cotija cheese (or more if you desire) and a squeeze of lime juice. Garnish with cilantro if using.
