This is a quick and simple way to liven up plain corn. You could use green onions instead of chives but reduce the amount, and adjust the amount of garlic to your taste. Use fresh corn cut off the cobs, or frozen.
I'm not sure where in Mexico this is eaten, but it doesn't matter, it's good! Adapted from Gourmet magazine (2006). I find the cotija cheese in super Walmart (or use feta). Cook time is estimated for cooking of corn.
Recipe inspired by Recipe#146841 that I changed to make cooking on a BBQ or grill a quick and easy option. Note the preparation time includes cooling time for the butter, and you can pop back in the fridge after wrapping the corn so it is quite quick and easy to prepare.
From the back package of a bag of Pictsweet brand frozen corn kernels. I enjoy finding recipes serendipitously! In summertime, try this using fresh corn! I'd also be inclined to add a few slices of red onion if the mood struck me.
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. My BF made this dish tonight, with the freshest zucchini and corn on the cob, it was delightful. He reduced the oil from 4 tablespoons to 1, and sprinkled liberally with pepper and omitted the parsley. Simple preparation, outstanding results.
