Elote Asado (Grilled Corn Cob Bites with Chile and Lime)

Ingredients
6
large ears of corn, husks and silks removed
1/2
cup snipped fresh cilantro
1
tablespoon ground ancho chile pepper
1/4
teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4
2
tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
2
tablespoons Mexican crema or sour cream
2
tablespoons lime juice
 
Salt

Directions

  1. Cut each ear of corn into thirds. Place corn pieces in a large pot and cover with water. Let soak for 10 minutes.
  2. In a small bowl stir together cilantro, ground ancho chile pepper, lime peel, and cayenne pepper; set aside.
  3. In an extra-large bowl whisk together butter, mayonnaise, crema, and lime juice; set aside. Drain corn. For a charcoal or gas grill, place corn on a grill directly over medium-high heat. Cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes or until corn is tender, turning every 5 minutes and brushing with butter mixture several times during the last 5 minutes of grilling.
  4. Place grilled corn in the remaining butter mixture in the bowl; toss to coat. Sprinkle cilantro mixture over corn; toss to coat. Season to taste with salt.
