Corn on the Cob with Chilies, Queso Fresco and Lime Butter

2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
¼ cup chili powder
2 teaspoons sweet paprika
1 tablespoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 ears fresh corn, unshucked
½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
4 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ pound queso fresco, finely grated

Combine ingredients cayenne pepper, chili powder, sweet paprika, garlic powder
and ground cinnamon below to make spice mixture. Set a side.

Soak the corn in cold water for 1 hour. Prepare the grill. Put the soaked cobs on the hot grill and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, turning frequently.

While the corn is grilling make the lime butter: In a small bowl, add the butter, lime juice, tarragon, cilantro and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix well and spread onto a large plate. Take the corn off the grill and carefully peel back the husks (it will be hot). Remove the corn silk and tie the husks in a knot so you can hold on to it like a handle. Roll corn in the butter. Top with a good amount of the queso fresco; sprinkle with the spice mixture. Serve immediately.
