Just to clarify! these are not esquites, these are what we call elotes or corn on the cob. Esquites are pretty much the same except you boil the corn kernel with epazote, butter, salt to the taste and a knort chicken bullion cube and serve in a small plastic cup with mayo, limes, chili powder of your choice, and queso fresco. I do however think this recipe sounds really good and will definitely try it.
This was sooooooooo good. I laid the ears of corn separately in pieces of foil and squeezed lime directly on the corn, sprinkled the spices and then sprayed with I can't believe its not butter and sealed the foil around the ear and grilled until hot. It was wonderful!
Loved the flavors with the butter! I used a chipotle cube from Knorr to flavor along with the lime and cilantro. Yum! Thanks! Made for ZWT4-Fancy Feinschmeckers!
Delicious! Normally I just coat my corn on the cob with butter, but I thought I'd give this a try since lime, chili and cilantro are some of my favorite flavors. I used chili powder since I didn't have any peppers on hand, but the result was spicy and scrumptious. I'd love to try this on the grill next time.
Great side for a barbeque, family loved it. I used a jalapeno pepper and we ate this plain with no toppings, just fresh limes.
My husehold eats corn on the cob like this all the time...especially my son!! I like to eat mine with chili pepper, real mayo and lemon pepper (don't knock it till you try it!! MUY BUENO!!
This was good! I made it almost exactly as the recipe stated, but I left out the cilantro and butter, and then just sprinkled the corn with cayenne pepper just before serving. I loved the flavor and the firmness the kernals retained from cooking them this way!
Deeeelicious! The perfect side to any Mexican dish. And easy too.
