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

1/2 lime

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.


  1. now thats a great way to prepare fresh corn....and your right who doesnt love corn!

  2. This sounds so great! Nothing says summer like corn on the cob :)

  3. Whenever we make Corn on the Cob at our place, it's always just plain. But since seeing this, no more plain for me!!=)

  4. Sounds like a good idea! I'll have to try that next time :)

  5. I appreciate your post, I have book marked this internet site so ideally I’ll see much more on this subject in the foreseeable future!
