1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for topping
1 tablespoon rocoto chile paste (available in jars at Latin markets)
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
8 ears corn, husks and silk removed
Crumbled cotija cheese, for topping
Preheat a grill to medium high. Combine the butter, garlic, lime juice, cilantro, chile paste and cumin in a bowl. Add salt and pepper; mix well.
Grill the corn, turning, until nicely charred, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with a spoonful of the flavored butter on top. Sprinkle with more cilantro and cotija cheese.
