This Chili Lime Corn is the perfect balance of sweet and spicy. A fun way to jazz up your corn on the cob!
It’s Recipe Redux day again! This month’s prompt was an easy one:
Fresh from the Garden: The season of bountiful produce has arrived. Whether your produce comes from the farmers’ market, a CSA share, or a plot of dirt out back, show how you are using fresh July fruits or veggies.
I honestly could have made 100 different things since we’ve been enjoying ALL the veggies lately…but I decided to bring back an old favorite! Hubby and I used to make our corn this way all the time…and then for some reason we totally stopped doing it for a couple of years.
Well this year I brought it back into the rotation and it’s just as good as I remember it!
There’s nothing fancy about this “recipe”. It’s pretty much just like it sounds.
Step 1: Cook your corn however you like to. Throw it in a pot, into the microwave or onto the grill.
Step 2: Let it cool enough to handle it, then cut a lime in half and rub over the ears while squeezing to release a little lime juice.
Step 3: Sprinkle with chili powder. Don’t go overboard! Just a light dusting will give you the perfect amount of spice to balance with the sweet corn.
Step 4: Enjoy!

Fresh corn tastes so good that all I usually do is cook it briefly and eat it plain. I love the idea of a spicy touch though and will give it a try.

There is nothing better than corn season!!!
Wendy @ Wholistic Woman says
I usually like corn with real butter and salt, but I might have to try this since I have some limes sitting on my counter!
Arman @ thebigmansworld says
I would like a single ear of corn and don’t be stingy on the chilli/lime hybrid.
Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl says
Oooo, I so wish I was eating corn right now. This sounds amazing!!

I don’t usually season my corn because I enjoy it plain but this looks good!

Amee Livingston says
Love the flavors here! We used to live in Ohio and I miss the midwest during corn season!!
Mary @ Fit and Fed says
Looks very good and easy, Lindsay! My husband loves to grill corn this time of year and the chili/lime would be a fun variation.
Sara- The Organic Dietitian says
Such a great idea to change up corn than just putting on butter.
Elizabeth @ Enjoy Every Bite says
We LOVE corn on the cob and this looks like such a simple, delicious way to spice it up a bit!
Erin @ Her Heartland Soul says
I just had chili lime on corn and it was like the best thing ever! Great recipe!
Dani @ DaniCaliforniaCooks says
Yum! I’ve been all about corn recently, and I like this twist!
Adam Trainor says
This is making my mouth water!!! This sounds great. I never really season my corn, just add a bit of butter to it and let it melt all over. I think I will try this at my next BBQ party.
I love how simple this is! I’ve never thought to eat corn this way, and I am excited to do this with the corn I bought the other day!
Kristen Chang says
This is a great! Our neighbor gave use fresh picked corn from his garden the other day and I honestly didn’t have a clue what to do with it… but now I do! Thanks!
I like my corn au naturel! It’s so flavorful on its own! I might have to try this seasoning for the hubby though.
Jennifer @NourishedSimply says
Always looking for a new way to eat corn. We are surrounded by corn fields here, so we eat lots of it!
let me know if you give it a try!
Ash Diamond says
So easy but such a fun way to spice up one of my favorite Summer side dishes!!
YUM. I just had corn for the first time this season from a local farmers market last night and I was all smiles. This chili lime combo sounds awesome and such a fun way to spruce up the classic.
