Chili powder and cumin pair well with sweet summer corn. Soak the corn before grilling to prevent the husks from burning.
6 ears corn with husks
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
How to Make It
Place corn in cold water, and soak for 20 minutes.
Combine butter and next 5 ingredients (through red pepper) in a small bowl; set aside.
Pull husks back from corn; scrub silks from corn. Brush butter mixture evenly over corn. Wrap husks around corn. Place on a grill rack, and grill 16 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Serve with lime wedges.
