Mexican Corn on the Cob

Delectible, succulent and a perfectly spicy!  This Corn on the Cob is wonderful to make as a side dish or even a snack.  The juicy corn with all of that butter, chili powder, cheese and the lime juice is so scrumptious and addicting.  The best part about it, no mess in the kitchen – bonus – no muss no fuss.

It’s a wonderful side dish that we made the other night to have with our BBQ chicken! It’s one of our favorites and it’ll be one of yours too! Check out a different version of this recipe using cumin or chopped fresh garlic instead of chili powder.  Mix it up a little and see what tickles your tastebuds.  

 Simple Ingredients:

  • 6 ears corn, unhusked
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/4 cup cotija cheese (Mexican white cheese)

  • Juice of 2 limes
