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 yum......so 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. ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)
I grew up in East Los Angeles and around there vendors sell "Elotes" (Corn much like this one) out of carts for a about a buck. I've always loved the flavor of the cotija, lime and corn together. I really enjoyed the garlic butter though, most vendors in L.A put mayo on the corn instead...sounds gross but is fabulous. This recipe was a much more sophisticted version of a Chicano favorite.
I love corn and loved this recipe even more!
Wonderful! Not having Cotija cheese (and not even knowing what it tastes like), I subbed Greek mizithra. Also had to use a hot banana pepper instead of the habanero. Other than that, followed the recipe as written. We all loved it and it made for a rather wonderful side to our dinner.
Absolutely the star of my dinner. I used some queso fresco and parmesan in place of the cotija. Delicious!!!
This was a terrific corn on the cob side dish served along with BBQ Ribs. Used a tad bit more habanero peppers, cuz I like it hot. Other than that, followed the directions and the result was amazing. Thank you for showing how to take the ordinary and make it extraordinary ;) Will definitely make this again! ~V
We ALL loved this corn and our guest mentioned that it was the best grilled corn she had ever had! I used Fresh grated Cotija b/c I find the already shredded Cotija to be salty and a bit harsh. Fresh Cotija is like a Mexican version of Parmesan cheese so I think that would be a good substitute if you cannot find Cotija. I do wish I had used more habanero pepper then what was called, but the guests who do not like spicy food found it pleasing and not spicy. Wonderful combination of flavors! Thanks Mommy Diva!
What a great corn on the cob recipe! I was a bit nervous that there would be too many competing flavors, but they were great together. There was just enough - but not too much - of everything. I boiled my corn, but I'm sure that grilled would be fantastic. Thanks for sharing!
