Recipe

I could eat grilled corn with every meal. Seriously. I love it as a simple side dish and always add leftovers to salads, frittatas, scrambles, and salsas. The sweet, slightly smoky, crisp bite of grilled corn elevates almost any dish in my opinion. And while I am usually content with simple grilled corn, when I want to step things up, this chili lime corn is usually what I am making. A simple zesty butter made with lime juice, lime zest, chili powder, and garlic powder is rubbed on the corn and then it is wrapped up and grilled until nice and charred. Delicious.

Directions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium high heat.
  2. Remove the husk and corn silk form all the cobs.
  3. Mix together the butter, lime juice, chili powder, and garlic powder.
  4. Spread over the corn and then wrap in foil.
  5. Place on directly on the grill rack. Cook for about 20 minutes until corn is nicely charred. Turn every 5 minutes to evenly char. If you have trouble charring the corn, remove it from the foil and place directly on rack during the last few minutes of cooking. Serve with fresh lime.
