Ingredients

  • 6 ears corn, shucked
  • 1/2 cup ghee, melted
  • 2 tbsp seasoning salt
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 cup queso fresco
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • a squeeze of lime

Directions

1. Place a piece of aluminum foil onto a cutting board or work surface. Lay an ear of corn onto the foil and brush with the melted ghee. Sprinkle with a little of the seasoning salt and the chili powder. Fold the foil over the corn so that the entire ear is covered. Repeat with the remaining corn.

 

2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Place the corn onto the grill and turn every 2 to 3 minutes until the corn is hot and a little charred on each side, about 20 minutes total.

 

3. When the corn is ready, remove from the foil and set onto a platter. Top with the queso fresco and cayenne pepper, if using, and squeeze a little lime on top.
