Grilled Corn With Smoked Paprika Butter

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by lazyme

This is a great way to dress up grilled corn on the cob. If you can't find the hot smoked paprika, try using about 4 teaspoons of minced chipotles in adobo sauce instead. The butter can be prepared one day ahead and is not reflected in the times. From Bon Appetit.

What a nice change...I cut the recipe way I cheated and didn't use the food processor...I just creamed all the butter ingredients together and rolled it into the size of a quarter...I got 4 little coin size slices...I used the frozen little corn nibbles...hubby really liked the smokey taste...thanks for posting it...=)
