BBQ Mexican Grilled Corn

 

Servings:

6 ears

 

Ingredients:

  • 6 EARS CORN, HUSKED
  • 1 TEASPOON CHILI POWDER
  • 1/2 TEASPOON SALT
  • 1/8  TEASPOON FRESHLY GROUND BLACK PEPPER
  • COOKING SPRAY
  • 1/4 CUP CREMA MEXICANA (CAN BE REPLACED WITH LOW-FAT OR REGULAR SOUR CREAM)
  • 6  LIME WEDGES

Directions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. In a small bowl, combine chili powder, salt and pepper.
  3. Place corn on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; cook 12 minutes or until corn is lightly browned, turning frequently. Place corn on a platter; drizzle with crema. Sprinkle with chili powder mixture. Spritz with lime juice.

(Oven Directions: If you need to roast the corn in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and place the corn (in its husks) on the middle rack for about 30 minutes.)

 

Grilled & Glazed Carrots

 

Ingredients:

  • 6 carrots (equal in size)
  • 1/8 cup Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/8 cup Honey

Directions:

  • Combine the balsamic and honey in a small bowl, whisk to combine and set aside.

 

  • Peel, trim and slice the carrots in half horizontally.

 

  • Put them in a zip-top bag and seal, leaving about an inch unsealed.

 

  • Cook the carrots on high in the microwave for two minutes, or until they are slightly flexible. This shortens the grilling time greatly. (Note: You may need to adjust the cooking time depending on the size of your carrots and the power of your microwave.)

 

  • Grill the carrots on a medium-high grill (about 400*) for three minutes.

 

  • Flip them over, brush them with the glaze and continue grilling another three minutes.

 

  • Remove the carrots to a platter and brush them with the glaze.

 

  • Serve and enjoy.
