Brown Bag Grilled Corn with Chili Powder & Lime
So on my quest for fast easy meals this summer I think of corn-on-the-cob. Why, because who doesn't like corn (well maybe a few people) but corn goes with anything and you can flavor corn with herbs, flavored butters and seasonings. It's bright yellow color makes it a happy food and it is also sweet and delicious. You can impress alot of people by just seasoning your corn, imagine that! Anyway, my son is just about happy with anything I make and anticipates by lunch time what I will be making for dinner (he has a big appetite!) I hope you enjoy my Grilled Corn with Chili &Lime Recipe!
Makes 16 pieces
4 ears shucked corn
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 1/4 teaspoons coarse salt
1. Grill corn over high heat, turning until lightly blackened in places and kernels are just tender when pressed, about 12 minutes
2. Cut each ear into 4 pieces. Transfer to a sturdy, medium-size paper bag and squeeze lime over corn. Sprinkle with chili powder and coarse salt. Close bag and shake to coat. Serve immediately fro the bag on in a bowl.
