Cotija and Lime Corn

Need a simple, summery side for your BBQ? This fits the bill and you can have it on the table in less than 10 minutes, start to finish.

Cotija and Lime Corn

8-10 ears of corn, husked and cleaned
2 TBSP butter
1/3 c cotija cheese, crumbled
2 TBSP grated Parmesan cheese
juice and zest of 2 limes
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp ground chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cayenne pepper
salt to taste

Heat the BBQ to medium-high heat. Place cleaned and husked corn on the grate and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, watching carefully to make sure it doesn't burn. Once corn is slightly charred on all sides, remove from heat and cut off all corn kernals into a bowl. Add butter, cheeses, lime zest and juice, and seasonings. Cook in microwave for 4-5 minutes, stirring after each minute. Serve hot.

Don't want to grill the corn? Just boil it in salted water for 3-4 minutes and then follow recipe above.
