But I digress, as my dental hygiene was not the purpose of this post.
Now if corn on the cob was always served with this yummy, fabulous, change your life forever and ever topping--I just might have to rethink everything I just claimed to be true about myself and corn on the cob. Because this stuff is just that amazing if you ask me. Hubs loved it too--I think I might have seen him shed a tear over the beauty of this recipe....oh, how I kid. But we both really, really enjoyed it.
(But our daughter who will happily eat broccoli, green beans, celery, and cucumbers? I cannot for the life of me get her to eat corn. Such a strange child, I mean, isn't corn every child's favorite "vegetable"? Well, it's not our Peanut's that's for sure.)
Anyhow, please make this....and then drop me a line to tell me how your life has changed for the better. Because it will. I promise.
Chipotle Lime Corn on the Cob ~ adapted from Taste of Home
4 large ears sweet corn, husked and rinsed
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. pureed chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (here's what you do with the rest of the can)
2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro, minced
1/2 tsp. lime zest
2 Tbsp lime juice
1 garlic clove, minced
Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving
Fill a large stock pot with water and bring to a rolling boil. Place ears of corn in boiling water and simmer until corn is cooked through, about five minutes. Remove from water and place on a serving plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Mix together mayonnaise, chipotle pepper, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, and garlic in a small bowl. Serve over *slightly* cooled corn on the cob and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
This topping also makes a fabulous salad dressing if you have any leftover!
