Yield: Serves 12
- 12 ears of corn
- cumin (or comino)
- chili powder
- light sprinkling of salt, if desired
- a little black pepper (or red for the bold!)
- grated lime peel, using the fine portion of the grater
Prepare the corn by pulling back the husks and removing the silk. Apply softened butter and then make a "Southwest" style corn by liberally sprinkling the following, after the butter rub. Return the husks to the proper position, secure and roast until just done. The combined spices (especially the lime and cumin) make for an unusual but wonderful Southwest style flavor.
