Chili Lime Corn

Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I’m newly pregnant and was going through the “thinking of food makes me sick” phase. But now, at 15 weeks, I’m starting to love food again! HOORAY! We have been getting our CSA bag for several weeks now. Unfortunately, those first few weeks of our CSA were torturous. We kept getting things like turnips, beets, and kale. The thought of eating those vegetables was sickening (so unlike me)! I’m more into the juicy fruits and vegetables and less into the fibrous kind. Finally, we’re getting yummy things like tomatoes and corn which I am loving these days! ┬áSpeaking of corn, I grilled some up with a spice rub that’s to die for! I must admit, I stole this idea from my friend, Emily, who made something like this the other night! It was so good that I had to recreate it and share it with you!

Start by pealing back the husks and removing the silks. Tie the husks back with kitchen twine for a pretty presentation! Then, soak the corn for 10-15 minutes so that the husks don’t burn. I used a roasting pan because that was the only thing big enough.

Pull out the corn and drain off the excess water. Pop these babies on your hot grill for about 10-15 minutes, turning every now and then. In the meantime, melt the butter and combine the spice mixture.

Once the corn is browned and tender, remove it from the grill. Brush with butter on all sides and sprinkle with the seasoning. These are perfect for a barbecue (or lunch if you’re me and Stew). Enjoy!

Chili Lime Corn-Serves 4

4 stalks corn

2 Tbsp butter

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp lime zest

Kitchen Twine

Preheat charcoal grill (if using gas grill, heat to medium-high). Pull back husks on corn and remove silks. Tie the husks back with kitchen twine. Soak in cold water for 15 minutes (turn halfway through soaking time); drain. Grill corn, turning every few minutes, for 10-15 minutes until corn is browned and tender. In the meantime, melt 2 Tbsp butter in a microwave safe bowl. In a separate bowl, combine cayenne, salt, chili powder, and lime zest. Once the corn is finished cooking, brush all sides with melted butter and sprinkle with the chili lime mixture. Enjoy!
