Grilled Corn with Chili Lime Butter

Since summer is officially here, if I feel like cooking at all, I usually do it on the grill. This recipe is so easy and always comes out great.

4 ears sweet corn
3-4 Tbs. butter, softened
1 1/2 tsp. chili powder
zest of 1/2 lime
1 Tbsp. cilantro, minced

Prep corn for grill by peeling back husks and removing silks. Be sure to leave the husk on, though, because it will protect the corn while grilling. Preheat grill to medium heat, or you can also do this indoors with a stovetop grill pan. Before grilling, spray grates with no-stick grilling spray (I use Pam for Grilling). Pull husks back up around corn cobs, then grill for 10-15 minutes until slightly charred and cooked through.

While corn is grilling, prepare the chili lime butter. Mash together chili powder, butter, cilantro, and lime zest. When corn is finished, remove husks and spread butter on corn.

You can change this recipe up a million ways--other yummy variations are garlic powder & parmesan cheese or lemon zest, chives, & thyme.

This looks delish! We love grilled corn on the cob, but I have never done any seasonings for it!
