We love Mexican food and corn on the cob. So I combined them into something fresh and spicy. For Italian flair, I make this corn with basil and oregano butter and Parmesan cheese.—MacKenzie Severson, Germantown, Maryland

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 29, 2013

This is a really great way to enjoy fresh corn. You can even vary the flavors of the butter you use for spreading on the warm ears of corn: Try using ground aromatic spices, paprika or curry powder.
