I’ve been wanting to make corn with cilantro, lime, and cotija cheese for a long time. I bought some sweet corn and decided to finally give it a try. I loved the flavor of the cilantro-lime butter on the sweet corn and the salty cotija cheese on top. We all, guests included, loved this corn on the cob. Baking the corn was very simple with little clean-up – I love that. It went really well with the Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.
Cilantro Lime Butter:
- 1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves, chopped finely
- 1/2 a lime, zested and juiced
- Sea salt, to taste
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 4 ears of corn, shucked and cleaned
- Cotija cheese, grated
How to Make Sweet Corn with Cilantro Lime Butter and Cotija Cheese

Coat each ear of corn with the cilantro lime butter and wrap individually in foil. Roast for about 20-25 minutes.
