Grilled Mexican Corn

Grilled Mexican Corn on the Cob, perfect for a late summer al fresco supper. // Feast + West

I have been waiting weeks to share this recipe with you. I made it for the Summer Supper collaboration I put together with Twin Stripe, Tag & Tibby and This Wild Season, and have been dying to share it with you!

I first fell in love with Mexican street corn at a restaurant in Raleigh. I have to have it any time I see it on a menu, whether at a food truck or at a sit-down place, and I love to make it at home during the summer with fresh corn. With summer dwindling out over the next few weeks, this Grilled Mexican corn on the cob is the perfect companion for a late season al fresco supper.
