Adapted from Cooking Light, June 2006 (www.CookingLight.com)

Chili powder and cumin pair well with sweet summer corn. Soak the corn before grilling to prevent the husks from burning.

2 ears corn with husks ½ teaspoon ground cumin
1-1/2 tablespoons butter, melted ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder 1/8 teaspoon ground red
½ teaspoon salt pepper
Lime wedges

1. Prepare grill.

2. Place corn in cold water, and soak for 20 minutes.

3. Combine butter and next 5 ingredients (through red pepper) in a small bowl; set aside.

4. Pull husks back from corn; scrub silks from corn. Brush butter mixture evenly over corn. Wrap husks around corn. Place on a grill rack, and grill 16 minutes or until done, turning occasionally. Serve with lime wedges.
