Ingredients

Spice Mix:

4 dried guajillo chile peppers

1/2 cup olive oil 

4 tablespoons ancho chile powder 

4 tablespoons ground cumin 

4 tablespoons whole coriander seed 

2 tablespoons whole peppercorns 

1 tablespoon kosher salt 

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 

Juice of 2 limes 

Corn:

8 ears corn on the cob

Juice of 3 limes

3 cups cotija cheese 

Directions

  1. For the spice mix: Cut the tops off the guajillo chiles, shake out the seeds, put the chiles in a bowl, cover them with boiling water and let them soak for about 30 minutes to rehydrate.
  2. Drain the chiles, then put them in a blender with the oil, ancho chile, cumin, coriander, peppercorns, salt, cinnamon and lime juice and blend until combined.
  3. For the corn: Prepare a grill for medium-high heat.
  4. Cut the corn in half and brush with the spice mix. Cook until charred in spots and grill-marked, turning halfway through, about 6 minutes. Sprinkle with lime juice and cotija cheese.
