  • Place corn, in husks, directly on the oven rack.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until tender and cooked through, 40 to 45 minutes.

  • Peel down husks and rub each ear of corn with 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle each with Cotija cheese, cilantro, chili powder, and lime juice. Serve.

Cook's Notes:

You can use dried cilantro instead of fresh, cilantro juice instead of lime juice, or a Mexican blend cheese, Parmesan, or Greek feta cheese if you can't locate Cotija cheese.

The corn can also be shaved from the cobs, mixed with the other ingredients, and made into a dish.

I used tajin instead of chili powder. I boiled the corn instead of grilling and I cut it off of the cob and served it from a bowl all mixed together. It was delicious! I definitely think grilling would have added another layer of flavor. Possibly adding grilled pablano next time as well. Read More

We used defrosted mini ears on skewers and grilled the corn until tender. Mixed melted butter and the ingredient seasonings and sprinkled the cheese on top. Just like the local restaurant version. Read More

This recipe turned out good and works for for times when grilling is out of the question but if you have access to a grill I recommend doing it that way instead. Read More
