Santa Fe Corn on the Cob

The zesty grilling sauce in this recipe has Southwestern flair, but it's not too hot or spicy.


6 servings


6 medium ears sweet corn in husks
1 tablespoon butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup steak sauce
3/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin


Soak corn in cold water for 1 hour. Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe dish, combine butter and garlic. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 2 minutes or until garlic is softened, stirring once. Stir in the steak sauce, chili powder and cumin; set aside.

Carefully peel back husks from corn to within 1 inch of bottom; remove silk. Brush corn with sauce. Rewrap corn in husks and secure with kitchen string.

Coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Grill corn, covered, over medium heat for 25 to 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
