When I think of summer, I think of fresh corn from the farmer’s market.
This Grilled Mexican Corn on the Cob recipe takes it to the next level with a little kick from habanero and the mild flavor of Cojita cheese.
I know, I know …
it’s August and almost the end of fresh corn season.
So to bid goodbye to the lazy days of summer, make sure you grill up some of this corn …
or store this recipe away for next summer.
