Servings: 6


  • 6 ears of corn
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 limes
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin

Approx. cooking times: for 6 ears with the slow cooker about. 3/4 full, cook on high for 2 hours or low for 4 hours.
If slow cooker is fuller (I used a 6 quart slow cooker) add cooking time.
*Adjust cooking times according to your slow cookers heat settings. Slow cookers vary in size and heat settings, and may need to be adjusted accordingly.
