Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime

Roasted Corn with Manchego & Lime is a side dish I make often anytime Mexican food is on the menu. This recipe pairs really well with my favorite beef enchiladas. The secret ingredient is, you guessed it, the manchego cheese. I ran across this recipe in a food magazine years ago and it’s a crowd favorite every time I make it. It really is a quick meal to prepare and doesn’t require a lot of prep or fancy ingredients.
