Great flavor for corn--not too buttery & not too strong. I'd probably amp the ratio of cayenne though, just for a little extra spice. It's good for flavoring your rice too.

ohh gosh this was good. i used veg. broth because i am non flesh consumer. i am a big spicy food fan and this was perfect. i get burned out on regular corn on the cob so i am glad i have got a new option.
