Grilled Corn Recipe
I can still remember the first time I tasted grilled corn on the cob. It was a 4th of July barbecue in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The firemen were grilling ears of corn for the crowd. They had giant barrels of corn soaking in water and a giant grill filled with corn. They would pull them off the grill, dip them in a can of melted butter, sprinkle with salt and then hand it over to be consumed. It was amazing.
Grilled Mexican Street Corn
- 8 Ears of corn in the husk
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1 cup finely crumbled Cotija cheese - you can substitute feta cheese if you cant fin Cotija, plus more for serving
- 1 t chipotle chili powder - plus more for serving
- 1 t cayenne pepper
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped cilantro leaves
- 2 limes - cut into wedges
- Salt and pepper
- Soak corn in husks in a tub of water for about an hour.
- Combine sour cream, Cotija cheese, chili powder, cayenne, and cilantro in a large bowl. Stir to combine and refrigerate.
- Cook corn on a hot grill, I want my grill to b between 450 and 500 degrees, turn the corn occasionally, until cooked through and it is well charred on all sides, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- I usually cook the corn while the main course rests.
- Using a grilling mitt, Pull back the husk and remove as much silk as possible.
- Use a spoon to coat the corn with the cheese mixture.
- Squeeze lime over top
- Serve immediately.
- Serve extra Cotija, chili powder, cayenne, salt, pepper on the side.
