Ingredients

  • 6 ears sweet corn with husks removed
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 limes
  • ¼ cup crumbled goat cheese
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro

Instructions

  • Submerge corn, with husks removed, in a large bowl of water for 20-30 minutes.
  • Remove corn, dry with paper towels, and individually wrap corn in foil.
  • On a hot grill, place foil wrapped corn on indirect heat and cover. Turn as needed and cook until corn is tender on all sides, which should be about 20-25 minutes.
  • Next remove corn from foil and place on direct heat to create char marks. Watch carefully and turn quickly to avoid burning.
  • Once charred on all sides, remove corn and place on serving platter.
  • Brush with butter then apply salt, pepper, and chili powder.
  • Sprinkle with juice of limes and cheese.
  • Lastly, garnish with cilantro and serve. Enjoy!
