Foodie Friday: Grilled Corn, Southwestern Style
I never was a fan of corn, until I met grilled corn. Top it off with a savory, spicy sauce that makes you want to kiss the cook, and you have a meal for the books!
6-8 Ears of Corn, in husks
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan Cheese
1 tsp Chili Powder mixed with 1/4 tsp Cayenne Powder
Chili Garlic Crema (recipe below)
Pull back the outer husks but leave attached at the base of the corn cob. Remove the inner husks and silks and then replace the outer husks. Soak corn in cool water for at least 10 minutes.
Prepare grill to medium low heat and then place corn (with outer husk pulled up) on the grill. Grill corn for 20 minutes, rotating every few minutes and being careful not to burn.
When corn is ready, remove outer husks. Serve each cob with a dollop of Chili Garlic Crema, a sprinkle of Parmesan, a dusting of spices, and a squeeze of lime.
