Chilli and Cheese Corn

I saw this recipe while watching Bobby Flay on the Foodnetwork and it looked absolutely delicious that I set about trying it out when I got some fresh corn. I didn't have cotija cheese that the recipe calls for and so made a couple of changes and also made it a tad spicier. It was very filling and had an interesting mix of flavours.

CHILLI & CHEESE CORN


Ingredients:
Corn Cobs - 4, dehusked
Chilli powder - half tsp
Habanero (or Pepperjack) Cheese - 1 to 2 oz, shredded
Sour Cream - 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves (Cilantro) - quarter cup, chopped
Lime Juice - 1 to 2 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tsp

Method:
1) Cook the dehusked corn with a pinch of salt (or grill them) till done. Slide a knife along the edges of the cob to cut the kernels out.

2) Heat oil in a pan and when hot add the corn kernels and chilli powder. Saute this for a few minutes before adding the sour cream and cheese.

3) Once that has melted completely, add the coriander leaves and lime juice. Heat through for a minute and switch off the flame. Serve as a delicious side with a dollop of sourcream atop.
