  • Grill corn, covered, over medium 30 to 35 minutes or until kernels are tender, turning once. Remove string and pull back husks. Tie husks with string to hold open.

  • Place corn on a platter and brush with oil. In a small bowl combine chili powder, cayenne pepper (if desired), and salt; sprinkle over corn. Top with cheese, cilantro, and, if desired, lime zest. If desired, serve with lime wedges.
