This corn on the cob is all dressed up in a zesty red pepper sauce. It's sure to become your new summer barbeque favorite!
1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled, seeded and diced (or bottled roasted red peppers)
1 Tbsp trans free margarine
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Tbsp chopped green onions or chives, snipped
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/8 tsp Tabasco (optional)
4 ears fresh sweet corn
1 Preheat outdoor grill. In a blender or food processor, combine the red pepper, margarine, green onions and cilantro. Add salt, pepper, and Tabasco, if desired.
2 Husk and clean the corn. Place each ear individually in the center of a piece of aluminum foil, shiny side up.
3 Coat each ear with a quarter of the pepper seasoning mixture. Wrap the foil around the corn, making sure the ear is well sealed by the foil. (Refrigerate until ready to grill.)
4 Place corn on grill near the edges or cooler areas. Grill until tender, turning frequently, about 10 to 15 minutes. Carefully unwrap the corn and serve.
