  • 4 Sweet Corn Kernels
  • 2 Tbsp Melted Butter
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Salt or Garlic Powder
  • 4 Tbsp Sour Cream
  • 1/3 Cup Crumbled Cotija Cheese
  • 2-3 Tbsp Fresh Cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 Tsp Chipotle Chili Powder
  • 1 Lime cut into wedges


  • Preheat the oven to 350F. 
  • Cut 4 pieces of aluminum foil large enough to hold a cob, then place a cob on each piece.
  • Brush each one with melted butter, and sprinkle generously with garlic salt. Seal the edges of your foil to form packets. 
  • Bake, or grill, for 30-35 minutes or until tender. Once the corn is done, carefully remove the foil and brush the corn with sour cream.
  • Sprinkle with cheese, chili powder and cilantro on all sides. Squeeze lime over and enjoy!
