Air Fryer Mexican-Style Corn on the Cob

Serves: 4
Active time: 10 min
Total Time: 20 min

We are in love with the versatility of Air Fryers here at CHEFS. Take this Mexican-Style Street Corn recipe. Looking to spice it up? Add a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to kick it up a notch. Feeling cheesy? Add a tablespoon of cotija cheese to each ear of corn!(Recipe slightly adapted from Cooking Light.)

Ingredients

4 ears fresh corn (about 1 1/2 lb.), shucked
Cooking spray
1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1 teaspoon lime zest plus 1 Tbsp. fresh juice (from 1 lime)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions

Lightly coat corn with cooking spray, and place in a single layer in air fryer basket.

Cook at 400°F until tender and slightly charred (about 15 minutes). Turn the corn over halfway through cooking.

Meanwhile, stir together butter, garlic, lime zest, and lime juice in a small microwavable bowl.

Microwave on HIGH until butter is melted and garlic is fragrant about 30 seconds. Place corn on a platter and pour over butter mixture.

Sprinkle with cotija, salt, pepper, and cilantro (and cayenne pepper, if desired). Serve immediately.
