"The perfect grilled corn for a summer barbeque! Always a huge success because it is the perfect mix of spicy and tangy. It is also a great option for the grill because there is no need to smother the corn in butter to make it taste good. Goes great with barbequed steaks or chicken."

So easy and SO delicious! Remarkably, you don't even miss the butter. This has already become a summer staple for my family!

So simple, yet so delicious! I agree with the other reviewer who said you don't miss the butter. I followed the recipe as written, except that I found med-high heat to be too hot. I grilled mine...

I made this a few weeks ago, more for my husband than me. I was so surprised and delighted to find out that I actually liked it! I normally don't really like Corn-on-the-Cob, but I ate two and...

Delicious! I squeezed the lime and added the spices straight to the corn, wrapped foil on each and threw them on the BBQ. Less maintenance and still an amazing mix of flavors.

great recipe. I also add in a bit of cayenne pepper to the chili powder

The lime flavor was too much for me. Just didn't care for it.

Very very good. We did it in the husks, minus silk, and then recovered them to grill. Very pungent.
