Oaxacan- Style Grilled Corn on the Cob

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by IngridH

From Cooking Light, August 2012. This is a great addition to your summer BBQ. I usually use ancho chili powder when no specific type is called for, which is mild, and slightly smokey- a nice compliment to the grilled flavor of the corn.

I made this as written using queso fresco and crema. We love corn on the grill and the sauce for this made it super special. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.
