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.Volunteer Field Editor

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.
