August 2013:  Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter

Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chipotle Butter

1 tablespoon chipotle powder or chile powder
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup salted butter (room temperature)

4 fresh ears of corn, shucked
olive oil or grape seed oil
salt and freshly ground black pepper


Mix chipotle powder with the lemon juice.  Add mixture to the softened butter in a small bowl and mix with a fork.  Refrigerate until ready to use.

Coat each ear of corn with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Grill the corn directly over medium-high heat, turning often, until lightly grill-marked and tender (yet still a bit crunchy) -- about 5 to 7 minutes total.

Remove corn from grill, top with chipotle butter, and dig in!
Serves 4.
