5 stars! What a great way to enjoy fresh corn ton he cob. We loved it, and the fact that the recipe didn't call for any butter made it even that much better. Thanks so much for sharing this keeper of a recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat BBQ to medium-high. Husk corn. Soak in water at least 5 minutes before grilling.
  2. Stir lime juice with chili powder, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. (We would suggest adding tequilla) Set aside.
  3. Place cobs on grill, using tongs to turn every 2 minutes until charred, about 10 min total. After each turn, brush the length of the cob with juice mixture. Transer to a platter. Serve when cool enough to handle.
