Chili-Lime Corn on the Cob

My last post showed a very simple and easy way to enjoy the fresh bounty of corn on the cob, but this is my favorite way to cook and season this wonderfully delicious grain.  It is an easy process and can be done on the grill or in the oven.

Corn on the Cob, shucked and cleaned
½ stick butter
1 Tbsp. Chili powder
1 Tbsp. Lime Juice

What to do:
Preheat oven or grill to 350-375 degrees.

In a small microwave safe bowl melt butter then add the chili powder and lime juice and mix well. 
Place an ear of corn on a sheet of tinfoil.

Brush the ear with the butter mixture, then wrap up in the tinfoil.
Repeat for all the ears you will be serving.
Place the wrapped ears on the grill or on the oven rack. (you can place them on a baking sheet in the oven if preferred)
Roast for 25 minutes.
