Delicious, I increased all ingredients and used 1 green and 1 red bell pepper, also I used my The Best Creole Seasoning! in place of the chili powder, we like things really spicy so I aded in some dried chili flakes also. thanks lazyme!...Kitten:)

Yummy. The corn is much like the roasted corn one buys at local streetfairs during the summer. I added an extra cup to my side dish. It was a little tricky figure out the right flame for this as you want it high enough to generate some color and caramelization but not so high you get a charred mess. I adjusted the heat several times but though it was worth the effort. I really liked the additions to the corn but next time would half the amount of red pepper to really let the corn stand out. Maybe a squeeze of lime and I'll be in heaven. Thanks.
