1 tablespoon butter
2 large ears of corn
2 tablespoons sugar
1 shallot, finely diced
1 Serrano pepper, remove veins and seeds, finely diced
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce (I used whiskey flavored)
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (I used mesquite)
1 teaspoon Frank’s original hot sauce
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper
1/3 – 1/2 cup Jack cheese

  • Bring a pot of unsalted water to a boil.
  • Add the sugar and ears of corn. **
  • Boil for 4-5 minutes, then cool completely.
  • Cut corn of the cob.
  • In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat.
  • Add shallots and chilies to butter, stirring until starting to caramelize and brown.
  • Add corn cooking until corn starts to brown.
  • Add salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, liquid smoke and lime juice stirring to coat.
  • Cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until liquid is absorbed.
  • Sprinkle a little cheese in each bowl, top with corn mixture and garnish with a little more cheese.

**NOTE: DO NOT ADD SALT TO THE WATER. Salt will harden the corn. The sugar will actually soften the corn and add a touch of flavor.
