Need a new, spicy twist on traditional grilled corn on the cob this summer? This Mexican street corn is a simple way to spice up plain ol' corn. The spread is tangy with just the right amount of spice to brighten up the smoky grilled corn. You won't be able to stop with just once cob!
Sprinkle on extra cheese, lime juice, fresh cilantro and chili powder for even more of a flavor punch in the mouth. You'll be surprised how such a simple recipe can completely transform one of your favorite summer grilled veggies.
Heat up your grill and oil the racks. Set corn cobs on the grills, rotating throughout the cooking until done, approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, spices, lime juice and cheese.
When the corn is cooked, remove from the grill and slather each corn cob generously with the spread you created. Serve immediately with extra cheese, cilantro, chili powder and lime wedges.
Grilled Chili Rubbed Flank Steak is a super simple way to take your grilled steak to the next level of flavor. The wet rub infuses so much tastiness into the flank steak - you can't go wrong with this one!
Are you ready for Memorial Day?? I am tweaking my menu daily for the annual massive BBQ I host, and I was feeling a little stumped earlier this week. That is, until now. This grilled chili rubbed flank steak changed ev-er-y-thang for me once I made it. It's one of the simplest recipes I've ever created, but in terms of flavor, it's ridiculously complex. All of the flavors in the rub perfectly compliment the meat and that really good charred taste you get from the grill.
You can easily serve this bad boy as is or there are about a million other ideas you could try out. Throw it on a salad. Chop it up and add it to a grilled pizza. Serve it with tons of grilled veggies. You can even make some killer tacos or a Tex Mex inspired sandwich with this meat. The options are limitless and it'll take you less than 15 minutes of active cooking time to make it happen.
So obviously, you should be adding this recipe to your Memorial Day menu right NOW.
INSTRUCTIONS: In a small bowl, combine garlic, lime juice, chili powder, salt, cumin, paprika and cayenne.
Stir until all ingredients are incorporated.
Rub the paste all over the steak. Let rest in the refrigerator for 15 to 20 minutes.
Grill the steak on a hot grill or grill pan over medium-high heat until it reaches your desired doneness (approximately 6 to 8 minutes for medium). Remove from grill and rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Serve alone over rice, with salad or even in tacos! Give it an extra squeeze of lime for a touch of extra brightness too. Recipe & photos by Meghan Bassett
