  • 3 fresh corn
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon pepper flakes
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 limes
  • Your favorite bag of chips


  • *Preheat oven to 350
  • Gently peel down the husk of the corn, and remove the tassel of silk strands. Then, using cooking twine, tie the husk together. This will make things easy to grab the corn. Then, Place the corn on a large baking sheet.
  • Next, brush the corn with melted unsalted butter and place them in the oven. Roast the corns for about 20 minutes.

Now, let's use our Toppings: First idea:

  • Brush mayonnaise on the cob of corn. Then, sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese and pepper flakes, followed by a squeeze of fresh lime juice. It tastes so good!

To make the corn on the cob with your favorite bag of chip:

  • As I mentioned before, I used our favorite chips, which are Takis. Brush mayonnaise on this cob of corn, then cover all sides of the corn with grated cheese and squeeze some lime.

As for the other cob of corn, I did a simple, flavorful topping.

  • Squeeze half of a lime over the corn, sprinkle garlic powder, chili powder, and very little cheese. And there you have it, three delicious ways of kicking up the flavors on your roasted corn.
