Eating these kind of reminds me of what it used to be like eating ribs… messy but delicious.

This was a delicious, smoky, and spicy alternative to plain corn on the cob.  I think the only thing I will do differently next time is to grill the corn.  From tips online, I gathered that you should first soak the corn in their husks for 30 minutes to several hours.  Then you can grill the corn, still in the husks (and wrapped with foil if you are worried about burning them), for about 20 minutes on the grill and they’re done.

Since we didn’t have the time, we just boiled them.

Chipotle Lime Corn on the Cob

(inspired by this recipe)

Shuck the cobs of corn and place in boiling water.  When the water comes back to a boil, wait a few minutes until the cobs are cooked and remove from the water.  Should take about 10 minutes.

Combine all other ingredients in a small bowl, mixing well.  Add enough lime juice so that the mixture is the consistency of a rub (thicker than a marinade, but not as thick as a paste).  Spread on corn… a little goes a long way (in the picture above I actually ended up removing some of the rub because it doesn’t need much to taste delicious).

I would rate the spice level of the rub somewhere between mild-medium.  If you like a kick that doesn’t kick you over, you will like this.

When I saw these videos a few weeks ago, I decided I needed to make this entire meal sooner than later…

Here are my results, everything was delicious!  I’m showing you mostly pictures up-front because I hardly changed anything.  You can find the “Smoky Chipotle No-Queso” recipe here.  For the rest, you can check out my map of the “It’s Nacho Business” meal here.

We found a couple of these “love mushrooms”… unfortunately we had to separate them. :/

Enchilada filling: mushrooms, red pepper, onions, and cumin. Everything is better with cumin

Queso, before blending.

Queso complete!

This recipe made 20 enchiladas (two 13×9 pans)

Papaya Salad and Nacho fixings. The salad dressing is at the top of my favorite salad dressings ever.
