Indulge In {Chipotle Cream Corn}

During the summer, one of my favorite side dishes to make is always corn on the cob. It's easy, delicious, and super fresh. Whether you grill it or boil it, you can't go wrong. Typically I just season it nicely with a bit of salt, pepper, and butter. But, this past weekend I kicked it up a notch. It was still quick and easy but they flavors provided such a bigger impact. I adapted this recipe from Rachael Ray's latest cookbook, My Year in Meals. It's grilled corn on the cob topped with a squeeze of fresh lime juice, a bit of spicy chipotle cream, some crumbled queso fresco, and a garnish of cilantro. It really has it all...spice from the chipotle, freshness from the lime and cilantro, and creaminess from the queso fresco. Even with it's fiesta flair, I know this corn dish will be a staple at all my summer BBQs. Here's the recipe...

:: Ingredients ::
4 Ears Corn on the Cob
1 Pint Heavy Cream
1 Lime, juiced
1 Tablespoon Pureed Chipotle in Adobo
Queso Fresco
Fresh Cilantro, chopped

:: Directions ::
1. Grill (or boil) corn until cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.
2. In a small sauce pan, heat cream until reduced by 1/3 to 1/2. Add in the pureed chipotle. 
3. On a serving plate, place ears of corn. Squeeze lime juice over each ear. Drizzle with chipotle cream. Top with crumbled queso fresco and chopped cilantro. Serve and enjoy.
