Grilled Corn on the Cob with Garlic Butter, Fresh Lime and Cotija Cheese

I was thinking the other day about my favorite food to eat off the grill & grilled corn came to mind. I like this Bobby Flay recipe for Grilled Corn with Garlic Butter, Fresh lime & Cotija cheese:

Grilled Corn on the Cob:


8 ears corn
Garlic butter, recipe follows
1/2 cup grated cotija cheese
4 fresh limes, quartered
2 tablespoons chopped chives, for garnish


Preheat grill to medium. Peel back the husks of the corn without removing them. Remove the silks and recover the corn with the husk. Soak in large bowl of cold water for 30 minutes. Remove corn from water and shake off excess. Place the corn on the grill, close the cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes.

Unwrap corn and brush with the garlic butter. Sprinkle with the cotija cheese and squeeze with lime. Sprinkle with chopped chives, to garnish

Garlic Butter:

2 sticks unsalted butter, slightly softened
8 cloves garlic, peeled and coarsely chopped
1/4 habanero pepper, seeded
1/4 bunch fresh chives
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Combine butter, garlic, habanero, and chives in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside until ready to use.
