The sweetness of fresh corn combined with the kick of ancho pepper powder with some sourness from feta cheese and lime zest makes for an amazing between-meals snack. This whole dish hinges on the corn, so the sweeter you can find the better. Corn can vary widely in its tenderness, so it’s often best to try a kernel raw before cooking it. This will give you an idea of how sweet and tender it already is and can inform your cooking time.
