Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Mix together chili powder, kosher salt, and cayenne in a small bowl. Set mixed seasonings aside.

  • Remove most of the silk while leaving 2 to 3 layers of husk on each ear of corn.

  • Cook corn on the preheated grill until husks are slightly charred, turning every 3 to 4 minutes, for 12 to 14 minutes. Let cool slightly. Remove husks carefully, leaving stems on as handles.

  • Squeeze 1/2 lime over each ear of corn. Sprinkle each with mixed seasonings to taste and top generously with Cotija cheese.

Cook's Notes:

You can use shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano instead of Cotija cheese if needed.

Do not soak corn in water as some recipes suggest.

Perfect as written! I wouldn't change a thing except to maybe add some chopped cilantro. I made this recipe along with another similar one that was roasted in the oven and hands down this one was far superior. Excellent and 5 stars all the way. Read More
