    What a mouth full! Both the name and the actual food. Yum! Cilantro Lime Bacon Wrapped Corn is one of our family favorites during the summer months. Anything I can make on the grill makes me one happy lady.

    We commonly grill, year round actually, but even more in the summer. Any meal I can make entirely outdoors is a winner in my book. If I can cook outside and not heat my whole house up, then I am definitely in.

    Cilantro Lime Bacon Wrapped Corn is zesty and sweet with a little bit of salty from the compound butter and bacon wrapping.

    The bacon doesn’t get super crispy because it is being steamed in aluminum and butter. If you like a crispier bacon, unwrap your aluminum foil and char a few minutes over direct flame.

    You might want to make extra cilantro lime butter and set it aside for after you finish it off since you will lose some of the seasoning from this step.
