Our friend Gabi at Broke Ass Gourmet came up with this recipe!
Simple, bold, smoky and sweet, this decadent way to serve corn is everything I crave. Perfect alongside a barbeque or alongside tacos. This recipe works well with white or yellow corn.
4 ears corn, shucked, cleaned and halved $2
3 tbsp unsalted butter $1 for a stick
1/2 jalapeño, diced finely $0.50
pinch salt Pantry
few sprigs cilantro, chopped $1 for a bunch
juice and zest of 1/2 lime $0.50
2 tbsp cotija cheese (optional) $3 for 4 oz.
Total Cost of Ingredients $8
Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Grill corn pieces for 2 minutes on each side, or until light charring develops.
While corn grills, melt butter in a small sauce pan. Add jalapeño, salt, lime, cilantro, lime juice and zest and remove from heat.
Drizzle butter mixture over grilled corn pieces. Garnish with cotija.
