Broiler-Grilled Corn

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by DrGaellon

From Pithy and Cleaver. The vivid flavors work well, even with supermarket corn, and the broiler means you can make it even in an apartment kitchen.

Super! I was looking for a broiled corn recipe and this is even better. I used a slightly different spice mix, plain yogurt without the liquid on top, and pepperjack instead of parmesean.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Crush chipotle in mortar and pestle, or grind in a spice grinder. Add chipotle, chili powder, cumin, cayenne, garlic powder, sugar and salt to yogurt and stir really well. Taste for seasoning; each ear only gets a thin coat, so if you want it hot, add more cayenne.
  2. Strip corn of husks and silk. Arrange on broiler tray in a single layer. Brush all sides with butter and broil 5 minutes. Turn over and broil another 5 minutes. Brush all sides with butter again. Continue cooking and turning often until corn is golden and a few kernels are charred.
  3. Transfer corn to a platter. Smear each ear with about 2 tbsp of yogurt mixture, spreading evenly. Sprinkle all over with parmesan and squeeze lime wedges over. Eat hot.
