Taco Spiced Corn on the Cob

[ 0 ] June 13, 2012 |

Simplicity is the name of the game this summer, which is why I welcomed this recipe from Nueva Cocina.  Nueva Cocina is a new product line made up of all-natural and easy-to-make Latin soups, seasonings and rice mixes.  The recipe below features one of my fave summer veggies and is completely simple after you get the lighter fluid started. Time to break out the grill.


4 ears of corn (cleaned)

1 packet of Nueva Cocina Taco Fresco Seasoning Mix

¼ cup olive oil

Place the corn in a plastic bag and coat it with olive oil.  Add the ingredients of the Nueva Cocina Taco Fresco Seasoning Mix, shaking the bag to ensure the corn is well coated.

Place the prepared ears of corn on a medium heat grill, rotating the corn as needed to keep it from getting charred too much on one side. After a couple of turns, place the corn on the top shelf of your grill, and close the cover.  Allow the corn to slowly continue cooking for approximately 15 minutes. This can also be cooked in the oven on a sheet pan at 375° for about 20 minutes.
