Broiled or Grilled Chili Lime Corn on the Cob
This corn could easily be made on the grill as well. Here is a link to Chris and Jenn for corn grilling instructions if you aren't familiar with that method.
Chili Lime Corn on the Cob
4 ears of corn
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon chili powder, I used NM red chili powder and I highly recommend looking for it specifically
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
optional: lime wedges for serving
Preheat your oven to broil and place an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat at the top of the oven. Break or cut each ear of corn into four sections. Heat the lime juice and the butter in a small pan on the stove or in the microwave until the butter melts. Add the chili powder and the salt and stir or whisk to combine.
Line a large baking sheet with foil and place the corn on the foil. Brush each ear of corn with the chili lime mixture. Broil for 3-5 minutes until the corn begins to darken slightly on the tips. Remove the corn from the oven, flip each ear over and brush the tops again with the chili lime mixture. Broil for another 3-4 minutes, until both sides are lightly browned. Remove from the oven and serve with additional lime wedges as desired. Enjoy!
