  • Prep-time: / Ready In:
  • Makes 6 ears of corn

In this easy recipe, a spicy-tart rub pairs well with the tender kernels of grilled fresh corn on the cob. You’ll never miss butter. Grilling with the husks on helps keep the corn from tasting too smoky, and soaking it first helps prevent the husks from catching fire on the grill. Be sure to use 100-percent cotton string, as synthetic string will melt during cooking.

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chipotle-Lime Rub

Ingredients

  • 6 ears of corn with husks
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground chipotle chile pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Peel back corn husks, but do not remove. Remove silks; rinse corn. Fold husks back around corn and tie with 100-percent cotton kitchen string to hold closed. Soak corn in enough water to cover 1 to 2 hours; drain.
  2. Grill corn, covered, over medium 30 to 35 minutes or until kernels are tender, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine remaining ingredients.
  4. Remove string from corn and pull back husks. Tie husks with string to hold open. Brush corn with lime juice mixture.

This is a fun and easy recipe, but I suggest going easy on the Chipotle Chili Pepper. It completely overwhelmed the lime & garlic. I only cooked 2 ears, so I made a half recipe of the basting sauce. My son loves spicy food, but even he had to get a 2nd glass of water while eating the corn and we both had to keep wiping our mouths from the burn. Try using half the amount of chipotle recommended; you can alway sprinkle on a little more if needed .
