  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) finely crumbled queso fresco cheese or Parmigiano cheese
  • 1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped cilantro

  3. Peel off husks; spread with butter and sprinkle with spice mixture.

  4. Place on serving platter and top with cheese and cilantro. Serve with lime.

  5. Test Kitchen Tip: Try substituting butter with mayonnaise mixed with cheese and sprinkle with pepper mixture.
