Sweet Corn with Cilantro Lime Butter and Cotija Cheese

I’ve been wanting to make corn with cilantro, lime and cotija cheese for a long time. I bought some sweet corn and decided to finally give it a try. I loved the flavor of the cilantro lime butter on the sweet corn and the salty cotija cheese on top. We all, guests included, loved this corn on the cob. Baking the corn was very simple with little clean up – I love that. It went really well with the Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.
