Roasted sweet summer corn and roasted vegetables with chipotle seasoning. Perfect for a side salad, on a bed of lettuce or topping your hot dogs.
Soak corn in a bowl of water for about 10-30 minutes.
Spray grill with cooking spray and preheat grill to medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Place corn, onion, jalapeno and bell pepper on grill; cook for about 10 minutes, turning every two minutes or until corn is slightly roasted, peppers are charred and onions are slightly charred. The peppers and onions will cook a little quicker than the corn, so be careful to watch your vegetables.
Place charred peppers in a brown paper lunch bag, seal the bag and let them steam and cool off. Once cool enough to handle, carefully peel away the skin. Cut corn kernels off of the cob by placing the ear in a bowl and carefully using a knife to cut down the cob and cut off the kernels.
Chop onion and peppers into bite size pieces.
In a medium bowl, combine corn, onion, peppers, tomatoes, lime juice, cilantro, chipotle powder, salt, pepper and avocado.
While my hubby used frozen fries (which also work great), this recipe starts from scratch, because I have plenty of potatoes in the bin. The fries come out crisp without being fried while the seasoning adds a nice flavor with a little kick of spice. This recipe will please husbands, wives, kids … even in-laws!
Cassava, also known as yuca, was one of my discoveries when visiting the Mexican vendors at my local flea market. Although the root vegetable is not indigenous to Mexico I seasoned this dish with some popular Mexican seasonings, then roasted it and enjoyed it (along with a couple of cold Dos Equis)!
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
