Mexican Corn on the Cob

Called elotes in Spanish, these are a real treat. Fresh corn is always great on the grill, but you can make this savory side dish in your oven, too. From the article Corn on the Fourth of July, featuring five fresh corn recipes.
  • 8 ears fresh corn
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup chili powder
  • 8 squares aluminum foil
In a small bowl, mix the softened butter with the chili powder until mixture is smooth.

Coat each ear of corn with approximately 1 tablespoon of the butter mixture. Wrap each ear in aluminum foil.

To grill, cook with grill lid down, over medium-hot coals 15 to 20 minutes, turning once. For the oven, roast at 350°F for 15 to 20 minutes.
