{Recipe} Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter June 25, 2012 23:53 3 Comments

Our family is a little bit odd. We grill all year round — it's healthy, gives great flavor to meat, & is so easy — so to say "summer is for grilling, isn't exactly a true statement at our house. However, there are some things about summer grilling that are different than the rest of the year. Namely: Corn on the cob. Come summer, we eat a lot of corn on the cob. ChipotleCorn_LoriDanelle_05.2012_01 I love everything about corn on the cob. There's something about shucking corn that just makes me happy. And I love it when the corn gets just a tad charred when cooked on the grill. That's when it's perfect. Top it off with some butter and I'm in heaven. ChipotleCorn_LoriDanelle_05.2012_02 But you know what makes Corn on the Cob to die for? ChipotleCorn_LoriDanelle_05.2012_03 Chipotle Butter. Believe me. You've got to try this. 1/2 cup salter butter, at room temperature 1 Tablespoon pure chipotle powder Juice of 1/2 lemon Mix the chipotle powder & the lemon juice in a bowl.

Pull this recipe out at your next BBQ, slather the chipotle butter on your corn & I promise everyone will think you hung the moon. It's that good.
