Chili lime butter adds a delicious finishing touch to grilled corn on the cob. Perfect to accompany any barbecue gathering, large or small. The butter can be flavored one day ahead and then brought to room temperature before serving.

  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon jalapeño, minced (or to taste)
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 ears corn on the cob in the husks

Place butter in a small bowl, add chili powder, lime peel, lime juice, jalapeño and salt. Mix well. Shape butter into any form you like, cover and place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Heat grill to medium-high. Place corn (in husk) on the grill, rotating corn so you cook on all sides, for approximately 15 minutes total. Remove from grill and cool slightly (so you are able to peel husk). Place corn back on grill over the same flame for about 4 minutes, once again rotating corn for even grill marks.

Serve corn immediately with chili lime butter.
Cooking options: Place corn (in the husk) on a plate and microwave for 5 minutes (2 1/2 minutes per side). When ready to grill, remove husks and grill over a medium-high flame for about 2 minutes per side.
