Chili powder, smoked paprika, and lime wedges give grilled corn a Southwestern touch. Brush with melted butter and cheese to complete this dish.

Ingredients

  • Ears of fresh corn
  • Salt
  • Melted butter
  • Chili powder
  • Smoked paprika
  • Grated Cotija or Parmesan cheese
  • Fresh lime wedges

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to 350° to 400° (medium-high) heat. Pull back husks from ears of fresh corn; remove and discard silks. Tie husks together with kitchen string to form a handle. Soak in cold salted water to cover 10 minutes; drain. Grill corn, covered with grill lid, 15 minutes or until golden brown, turning occasionally. Remove from grill. Brush corn with melted butter; sprinkle with salt, chili powder, smoked paprika, and grated Cotija or Parmesan cheese. Serve with fresh lime wedges.
