"This was very good. My husband is a huge fan of cilantro so he gobbled these up. He did turn the corn frequently to keep it from charring too much."

"This is a great summer recipe. We left out the sugar because the corn is sweet enough for us without it. We added a little lime juice for extra flavor. The recipe is very easy and tasty. We will be making it again!"

"I omitted the sugar and cilantro in this recipe. It was very tasty. Make sure to turn the corn frequently and don't have the heat too high. I had char marks on the corn but it was too charred for my liking.

"This recipe is just as good without the sugar. It was tender and flavorful. A squeeze of lime juice and sprinkle of Ancho chile powder after grilling tool me back to the elote stands of my home town."
