Spicy, smoky and sweet--it's almost summer and time to start those grills! This recipe comes from Bon Appetit, August 2006.

Corn season is here and these cobs turned out wonderful. I cut the recipe in half as I was only doing up 3 cobs and that was perfect. I had frozen the chipotles, then chopped them up and put them in a container. It is so easy then to get out the amount of chipotle you with us, 1 tsp was plenty of heat without being overpowering!!! I would do this recipe thanks, Juenessa for the posting!!
