Instructions

  • 01Corn with Chipotle-Lime Butter Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F). In a small bowl using the back of a fork, mash the butter ingredients and stir to distribute the seasonings evenly. If a spicier butter is desired, add more chipotle chiles, ¼ teaspoon at a time. Spread each ear of corn very lightly with 1 to 2 teaspoons of the butter mixture. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the corn over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until browned in spots and tender, 12 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer to plates and serve warm with lime wedges, spreading the remaining butter on top.

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the corn over direct medium heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until browned in spots and tender, 12 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

    NOTE: All three butter mixtures can be made a day ahead and refrigerated. Just bring them to room temperature before using them so that they become soft enough to spread.
