Ingredients

  • 12 ears corn on the cob
  • 1/3 cup lime juice , about 6 limes
  • 1 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high. Peel back corn husks. Remove silk from cobs. Soak cobs in water at least 5 min before grilling. Stir lime juice with chili powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Place cobs on grill, using tongs to turn every 2 min until charred, about 10 min in total. After each turn, brush the length of hot cob with lime-juice mixture. Transfer to a platter. Serve when cool enough to handle.
