Make way for the real MVG, Most Valuable Goodies.

Game Plan

Appetizers - time for the warm up! Limber up your bellies and get ready for that first down.

Corn Ribs Blitz: 30 mins

Ingredients:

x amount of corn on the cobs

4 tbsp of butter or olive oil

1 tsp lemon pepper ⁣

1/2 tsp garlic powder⁣

1/4 tsp chili powder⁣

1/4 tsp black pepper⁣

1/2 tsp smoked paprika ⁣

Chipotle Lime Mayo:⁣

1/2 cup Mayo

2 tsp chipotle peppers in adobo sauce ⁣

juice of 1/2-1 lime (to taste) ⁣

salt to taste⁣

Cotija cheese for topping⁣

chopped cilantro for topping⁣

Corn ribs are smacked down with loads of flavor! With your guest list already in mind, grab your desired amount of corn (one full corn on the cob creates four corn ribs). Preheat your oven to 375 degree fahrenheit and begin rinsing off your corn on the cob. Carefully cut the corn into four pieces, cut once in half and then cutting those two halves in half again. In a bowl add butter and mix in spices, have fun and create your own flavors to come up with the perfect flavor for you! Now brush the newly created butter mixture onto all the corn pieces and pop into your preheated oven for 25 minutes. Keep an eye on your corn ribs to prevent overcooking, take out when they are nice and curled or leave in a bit longer for a charred effect. Mix up chipotle lime mayo sauce while cooking. Grab a separate bowl and add mayo, lime juice, and chipotle peppers in adobo sauce with a sprinkle of salt. After corn is cooked to your satisfaction, pull out of the oven and top off with your sauce and toppings.
