Make a large batch of this zesty, spicy butter, freeze it in small portions and use while corn is in season.

ingredients

  • 4 ears fresh corn, husked
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced chipotle pepper in adobo sauce plus 1/4 teaspoon adobo sauce (see Ingredient Note) or 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Ingredient Note: Chipotle chilies in adobo sauce are smoked jalapeƱos packed in a flavorful sauce. Look for the small cans with the Mexican foods in large supermarkets. Once opened, they'll keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator or 6 months in the freezer.

directions

Preheat the grill to high. Wrap each ear in foil. Place on the grill and cook, turning frequently, for 10 minutes. Remove from the grill and let stand in the foil while preparing the butter. Combine the butter, lime zest, lime juice, chipotle and adobo sauce (or ground chipotle) and salt in a small bowl. Carefully unwrap the corn. Serve with the butter.
