Grilled Corn on the Cob with Mesquite Cilantro Butter


Make grilled corn the star of your barbecue by brushing with Mexican inspired mesquite cilantro butter and Cotija cheese. Create a handle for holding the corn with the husks pulled back before grilling.


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Grill Mates® Mesquite Seasoning
  • 8 ears fresh sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup crumbled Cotija cheese


  1. Mix butter, cilantro and Seasoning in small bowl. Set aside. Peel back the corn husks without removing husk or stem. Remove all of the corn silk. With husks pulled back, tie together with piece of husk.
  2. Grill over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until corn is tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally.
  3. Spread butter mixture over corn. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve immediately.
