Grilled Corn on the Cob W/Jalapeno-Lime Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Z-chef

The Jalapeno-Lime Butter makes the fresh taste of grilled corn on the cob come alive!! It's not too hot - just the right amount of jalapeno flavor. This recipe came from the Epicurious website and I've prepared it for a couple of summers now. Always a surprise taste experience for guests!

I made this last night for dinner to serve with chicken. I was a little leery on the amount of jalapenos that the recipe called for, especially since the grandkids would be eating it too. So I actually made two batches... one as written, and the other with just the lime and garlic. I'm glad I did. The grandkids and I preferred without the jalapeno added, although hubby liked the original version (which was a little too spicy for me on corn). Good recipe, but did need some adjusting. I may try again using only one jalapeno next time. Thank you for posting. Made for PAC - Spring 2013
