Total time
Roasting veggies like corn over an open flame intensifies their flavor and adds just a hint of smokiness.
Serves: 4-6
  • 4 ears corn, husks removed
  • 2 Tbl. butter
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. chipotle chili pepper
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  1. Flame roast corn over a stove top burner or under a hot broiler. Turn every minute or so until it is lightly charred on all sides. Allow to cool slightly, then cut off the cob.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute onion, jalapeno, and corn until tender 5-7 minutes. Add seasonings and salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking an additional 2-3 minutes. Serve topped with chopped fresh cilantro.
