Southwestern Grilled Corn-on-the-Cob

Great for bbq cooking!

Southwestern recipes and bbq cooking go hand in hand. Throw some flesh on the grill, and save room for some fresh corn-on-the-cob! This corn is seasoned with typical flavorings of Southwestern cuisine, so it serves as a tasty companion to grilled meats, fish, and poultry. Use only fresh ears of corn. Older, more mature ears will have more starch content and less sugar.

If you’re pulling your own corn, choose ears that have brown tassels. The ears should be well filled out, too. Get the corn from the field to the pot, grill, or oven as quickly as possible.
