Grill It: Cobbed Corn Showdown!

Corn with Chili Lime Butter v. Grilled Corn with Lime, Cayenne and Cotija

Joshua Bousel posted this simple, yet amazing sounding grilled chili lime butter corn recipe over at SeriousEats. The fact that this recipe combines two of my my favorite ingredients – butter and chili powder – lands it top on my “to try” list. It’s hard to improve on grilled corn, but this flavor combo seems like it might be a keeper.

After salavating over Bousel’s dish, I came across the second grilled corn option with Lime, Cayenne and Cotija posted at Chow.com. While both recipes feature lime, I’m curious which one would win in a grilled corn throwdown. I’m leaning towards the cotija, because cheese just makes everything better. But its hard to beat simple buttered corn. Time to test both and pick a winner!
