What You Need

large  ears corn on the cob (in husks)
cup  butter
 onion, finely chopped
 red pepper, finely chopped
cup  yellow cornmeal
 fresh basil leaves, chopped
 eggs, beaten
cup  KRAFT Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese

Make It

HEAT grill to medium heat.

REMOVE corn from husks, reserving husks. Cut corn from cobs; place in blender. Blend until smooth.

MELT butter in large skillet on medium heat. Add onions and peppers; cook and stir 5 min. or until crisp-tender. Stir in corn, cornmeal and basil; cook 5 min. or until mixture forms dough, stirring constantly. Cool 5 min. Stir in remaining ingredients.

SPREAD 1/4 cup corn mixture down center of each of 20 husks to within 2 inches of top. Fold over sides and top end of each husk to enclose filling.

GRILL 15 min. or until filling is heated through, turning after 8 min. Cool slightly before serving.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with a crisp mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Make Ahead
Tamales can be assembled, wrapped tightly in foil and stored in the refrigerator up to 2 days. Or, store in the freezer up to 6 months; thaw in refrigerator before grilling. Remove tamales from foil before grilling as directed.
Assembling Tamales
If corn husks are small or narrow, use 2 husks, overlapping them slightly, before filling as directed.
