Elote Asado (Grilled Corn with Chile & Lime)

Holy crap this is wicked good!!!!

I don't have step by step pics, because I was wicked busy and distracted, but this is too good not to share!

I found this in the Better Homes & Gardens Mexican magazine... ya know... those cooking magazines at the checkstand at the grocery store? One of those!

I'm SO glad I picked it up!!
