Grilled Corn with Cilantro Lime and Chipotle Lime Butters


  • 6-8 ears of corn preferably in the husks still
  • 1 stick of butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro chopped
  • zest of 2 limes divided in half
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1-2 chipotle peppers chopped (I buy the canned peppers in adobo sauce)


  1. Divide your butter in half in 2 separate bowls.
  2. Cilantro Lime Butter: Mix half of the butter with chipped cilantro, half of the lime zest and half of the lime juice.
  3. Chipotle Lime Butter: Mix the other half of the butter with chopped chipotle peppers, half of the lime zest and half of the lime juice.
  4. Cover and place both butters in the fridge for an hour or so to meld the flavors.
  5. For Corn: Soak the corn in water for about 20 minutes. This prevents it from burning. Preheat your grill to a medium heat and grill corn (still in husks) for about 12-15 minutes. Be sure to turn a couple times so that it cooks evenly.
  6. Remove from heat, carefully peel back tongs and serve with the butter of your choice!
