Mexican Corn Deconstructed

This is a great summer meal for when all the fresh corn is in.  Something different than the usual corn on the cob go to.  Great to use corn from my freezer too, which is what I did here.  I ate about half of this as my lunch.  Hmmm.

Limes are really a game changer for this dish.  You really need the limes.  As my friends Mexican friend says, if you want to make a dish Mexican, just add limes.  I dont know if it is exactly that simple...  This is definitely a dish with lots of Mexican flavor.  Ay, caramba!

Mexican Corn on The Cob Deconstructed
Idea from here at Bon Apetit.

2 cups corn
1 large bell pepper chopped
juice of 1 juicy lime- about a 1/4 cup
salt and pepper
chives or green onions chopped thinly
cotija cheese or feta if you cant find it
garlic, minced

Cook corn, peppers and garlic in frying pan.  Let it sit at the bottom- don't stir too much.  You want to char it a little.  I was going to say brown there but char just sounds so much more sexy! Add in salt and pepper.  Once it is browned quite a bit, remove from heat and sprinkle with some fresh feta and chives or green onions.
