      Wow! What a way to eat corn on the cob!! The garlic and chives really compliment the corn and the jalapeno (used instead of habanero) gave just a little heat without overpowering. Fabulous recipe!! I couldn't find Cotija cheese so I used Manchengo instead. Made for Las Mistico Magicos Sirenas - ZWT5.

      OMG, these are so good. I loved everything about them. To start off, the way to prepare them is great. It doesn't heat up the kitchen and tastes great. Then the garlic butter with peppers in it oh good. To top it off, the cheese on these is over the top. I would never of thought to top corn with cheese. thank you for introducing us to something completely different for us.

      10 STARS!!!! This is my favorite of all I made for the ZWT5 so far! I loved this. And corn is not at it`s peek of freshness yet! It is key to soak as soon as you bring the corn home, check Grilled Fresh Sweet Corn on the Cob in Husks The flavors are fabulous in this. I was so satisfied with one. More then plenty. And the butter is a very generous serving so that could be cut back. Being said this is a lot less calories then stated. Made for ZWT5. Gracia. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)
