    Celiac.com 09/06/2016 - Summer means corn, and roasted Mexican-style corn is one of the best gluten-free summertime treats I know. This recipe is sure to leave lots of full stomachs and happy smiles.

    Ingredients:

    • 6-8 ears fresh corn, un-shucked
    • 1 stick butter, room temperature
    • 3 tablespoons lime juice
    • 2 teaspoons chopped tarragon
    • 6 ounces queso Cotija, finely grated
    • Spice mixture (recipe below)

    Spice Mixture:

    • 2 tablespoons chili powder
    • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
    • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
    • 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon

    For the spice mixture, combine all ingredients. Sprinkle over roasted corn as desired.

    Directions:
    Soak the corn in cold water for 1 hour.

    Heat the grill.

    Put the soaked ears on the hot grill and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, turning frequently.

    While the corn is grilling, make the lime butter.

    In a small bowl, add the butter, lime juice, tarragon and salt and pepper, to taste.

    Mix well and spread onto a large plate.

    Take the corn off the grill and carefully peel back the husks (they will be hot).

    Remove the corn silk and tie the husks in a knot so you can hold onto it like a handle. Roll the corn in the butter.

    Top with a good amount of Cotija cheese and sprinkle with the spice mixture.

    Serve immediately.

    For a variation, smear corn with mayonnaise instead of lime butter, and use spices as desired.
