There are many variations on this dish. Bring other toppings such as an herb Chimichurri or Crispy Carnitas bits to play with as you dream up how to create your own signature grilled corn. This happens to be our absolute favorite.
Fresh Summer Corn
Montana Mex Mild Chile Seasoning
Montana Mex Jalapeño Seasoning
Cotija Cheese, crumbled
Build a fire and wait for the ash on the wood or coals to turn white or preheat a grill to med/hi heat.
Soak the corn in cold water for 10 minutes and then remove and shake off excess water. Lay corn directly on the coals or grill and cook on all sides for 15- 20 min until husk is dark brown and even slightly blackened and the kernels are tender and cooked.
Remove from the grill. Now the fun part. As soon as you can handle the hot corn(a bbq glove will allow you to get after it immediately!!) Peel the husks back to the stem, remove and discard the silk.
Now it is completely up to your taste buds or those of your guests and how you like your corn. I cover the shucked cob generously with mayonnaise, then sprinkle liberally with both seasonings. I finish my corn with a generous topping of crumbled Cotija cheese, and a squeeze of fresh Lime. Have fun with this dish and play with the seasonings until you find a blend that is truly your own perfect signature grilled corn.
