  • Peel back corn husks toward stem ends; remove silks. Rewrap husks and tie with long pieces of husk or twine. Soak corn in a large bowl of water 30 minutes.

  • Preheat grill to medium-high. Grill corn, turning, until steamed through and charred in places, 12 to 15 minutes. To serve, unwrap husks, brush each ear with butter, sprinkle with chile-lime salt, and sprinkle with cheese. Garnish with chopped jalapenos and cilantro.
