Ingredients

Cilantro Pesto:
Roasted Green Pumpkin Seeds:

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

Heat the grill to medium-high. Once hot, lay the corn across the grill. Rotate corn every 3 minutes until all sides are evenly golden and slightly charred, about 15 minutes.

Put the corn on a platter. While corn is still hot brush the corn with cilantro pesto and then sprinkle with the Cotija cheese. Serve.

Cilantro Pesto:

In a food processor add the cilantro, canola oil, pumpkin seeds, Cotija cheese, and garlic. Puree until smooth but not liquid. Taste for seasoning. Cooks Note: Usually you do not need salt because of the salt in the roasted pumpkin seeds and the cheese. Set aside.

Yield: 3/4 cup

Roasted Green Pumpkin Seeds:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Add the pumpkin seeds, canola oil, chili powder and salt, to taste, in a small bowl. Mix well to combine.

Spread the pumpkin seeds out evenly on a cookie sheet or baking pan. Bake, stirring the seeds every few minutes until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Set aside until cool.

Yield: 1/2 cup
