ingredients

directions

  • Place the butter in a small bowl, add the chili powder, lime peel, lime juice, jalapeño and salt and mix well.
  • Shape the butter into any form you like, cover and place in the refrigerator until shortly before ready to serve, at which time allow butter to soften.
  • Heat grill to medium-high.
  • Place corn (in husk) on the grill, rotating the corn so you cook on all sides, for approximately 15 minutes total.
  • Remove from grill and cool slightly (so you are able to peel the husk) and peel. Place corn back on grill over the same flame for about 4 minutes, once again rotating the corn for even grill marks.
  • Serve the corn immediately with the chili lime butter.
  • Cooking option: Place the corn (in the husk) on a plate and microwave for 5 minutes (21/2 minutes per side); when ready to grill, remove the husks and grill over a medium-high flame for about 2 minutes per side.

    We had enchiladas, Spanish rice and corn on the cob tonight. I'm always looking for innovative compound butter recipes so I gave this one a try. It's amazing and I plan to use it again and again. Yum!

    Delicious!! I grilled the corn then cut it off of the cob to make it easier and just mixed all of the ingredients together. We really loved the flavor and will definitely be making this often. Thanks for posting!

    So delicious! I used only a tablespoon of Smart Balance for our tastes, had to leave out the jalapenos and grilled the corn without the husks. We just loved the balance of flavors and would definitely make these again!
