Mexican Corn on the cob

I have never been a fan of corn on the cob until I tried grilled sweet corn at Sol Cocina in Scottsdale. The corn came nicely charred and carved tableside. The corn kernels are crisp, sweet and juicy. I like to stir a good dollop of chipotle/mexican crema and lime juice to make it a liitle creamy, smoky and tangy.

We made this as a vegetable side to go with Arroz con Marisco last night. Perfecta! It was so good that we bought more and made it again to go with the hamburger meal this evening.
