Finally there is more fresh produce to choose from at the grocery store, including a summer time favorite – corn on the cob! Corn on the cob and watermelon are two sure signs that summer is on the way! 🙂
I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Sunshine Sweet Corn. I received a gift card to purchase a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe
Fire up our BBQ for our favorite Grilled Corn on the Cob recipe. It surpasses boiled and buttered corn on the cob with great flavor everyone will enjoy – plus it is easy to make. My kids even help make it – prep work only – not the grilling! 🙂
Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe Ingredients:
- 5 corn on the cob
- 3 tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp lime juice (I use True Lime)
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
Grilled Corn on the Cob Recipe Instructions:
- Soak corn on the cob with husks for 30 -45 minutes
- Pull back husks but do not remove
- Remove silk from corn – I use a veggie scrub brush
- Combine melted butter, lime juice, chili powder, salt, black pepper and garlic in small bowl
- Brush butter mixture evenly ingredients on corn
- Rewrap with husk, tie with loose husk or twine
- Grill on med to high heat for 15-20 minutes until done, corn is done when easily pierced with a sharp knife
- Turn occasionally
- Remove husk and spread with additional butter, if desired
Kids and adults alike enjoy this tasty grilled corn on the cob recipe. Even though there is chili powder and fresh garlic, the flavors do not overpower the fresh taste of the corn. You could add more chili powder if you desire a spicier version. My daughter has 2 missing front teeth, so I cut her corn on the cob while my son bites right into the corn on the cob!

My family likes fresh corn on the cob anyway I prepare it – you can’t go wrong with it. Plus, it is fun to eat! It is a great way to welcome warmer days of Spring and Summer to any meal.
If you like corn on the cob with a little kick, you should try the Santa Fe Grilled Corn on the Cob recipe too. Another favorite corn recipe that I like to use fresh corn on the cob with is the Chili Lime Corn and Spinach Salad Recipe. It is delicious any time of year – and believe it or not, it is a salad that my kids enjoy too! A great warm side dish that we enjoy using fresh corn on the cob is Basil Scalloped Corn – I just add fresh red and green peppers and replace the Mexicorn that the recipe calls for.
