Mexican Street Corn Style Grilled Zucchini

This is one of those recipes where I should probably read better.  It wouldn't have been adapted if I had written on the list 2 pounds of zucchini and not 2 zucchini.  But such is life and thus 2 zucchini made 4 servings.

I love Elote, so this wasn't a huge stretch.  It was very good, had a nice bite, and I would have again.
