Grilled Mexican Corn on the Cob

My grandpa always used to say there is nothing better than fresh sweet corn. I guess he never tried Grilled Mexican Corn on the Cob!

This delicious grilled side dish takes a classic up a few notches! Savory, delicious, and so so easy. It’s a showstopper for any BBQ this summer. I recently prepared a grilling themed dinner for my family, and everyone raved about this corn. I thought I had prepared more than enough, but it was gone in no time. It was the perfect side dish to my Tequila Lime Chicken. We topped off the meal with Grilled Peaches and Cream. The perfect summer dinner menu!
