Barbecue season wouldn’t be the same without grilled corn on the cob. We’ve created a modern spin on this summer classic with fresh and salty cotija cheese with some citrusy lime. Impress friends and family at your next backyard bash with this new favourite.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 4


2 Tbsp canola oil
4 corn cobs in husk
1/3 cup crumbled cotija cheese
Juice of 1 lime
2 tsp chili powder
½ tsp kosher salt

1. Prepare a lightly oiled grill over medium high heat. Meanwhile, gently pull back the husk of the corn cob and remove all the hairs. Fold the husk back over the Cobb. Rub corn cobs with canola oil.
2. Grill corn in husk for 15 minutes, rotate the cobs every 5 minutes. Once grilled, pull the husks back and sprinkle the cobs with Cotija cheese, lime juice, chili powder and kosher salt. Serve warm.
