Spicy Grilled Street Corn

Turn up the heat with this side dish

Serving Size: 8-12 people


6 ears of Corn, husk on
1 wheel Cotija Cheese
1 bunch Green Onion
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
1 Tsp Kosher Salt
Cilantro to taste
1 Bottle Four Letter Hot Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
Optional for garnish: cilantro, lime


1. Get the grill on and hot

3. Cook for 15 minutes flipping after 7 minutes
4. Remove the corn from the grill
5. Remove the husk and put the corn back on the grill to char the outside, flipping every 2-3 minutes
6. Once the corn is nice and charred remove the corn
7. Add the butter, season with kosher salt, sprinkle the cotija cheese crumbles, garnish with cilantro, green onion, lime and douse in Four Letter Hot Sauce
