Mexican Grilled Corn

4.4 from 7 reviews


  • 8 ears of corn on the cob
  • 1 cup Cilantro Butter (recipe here)
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese or cotija cheese
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • cayenne pepper to taste


  1. Remove the husks of the corn but leave the core attached at the end so you have something to hold on to.
  2. Grill the corn on a hot grill until slightly charred.
  3. Turn every so often so it gets cooked evenly all over.
  4. When cooked take off the grill and while still warm slather with cilantro butter.
  5. Shower with crumbled Feta cheese or Cotija cheese and grated Parmesan.
  6. Sprinkle with cayenne pepper and serve as a sidedish or by itself..
