Grilled Mexican-Style Corn

Total Time

Cook 15 mins

This is the best corn on the cob you will ever have. You can also cook it in the kitchen if grilling is not possible. My family eats this all summer long. This recipe came from Martha Stewart Living.

This was very tasty corn. I used an aged cheddar, sour cream and a bit more cayenne. Hubby ate 3 ears of corn!! It made a great side to Salsa Chicken (recipe #27475). This recipe will definately make a repeat appearance this summer.
