Chipotle Lime Corn on the Cob

This easy Chipotle Lime Corn on the Cob has incredible flavor, and only takes 5 minutes to make. It’s a nice change from the usual buttered corn on the cob!


Some ears of corn are so good that it would be a disservice to put ANYTHING on it.  I had some last week that was unbelievably sweet and plump, so when I saw some again at the store the other day, I snatched them up.  I got home and shucked the corn, threw them in a pot of boiling water, and stared down into the rolling bubble….mmmm….cook faster!  After five minutes I drained them, took that first bite and…!!!!!!!!!

Unnnnnghhhh.  It sucks.  It tastes like nothing.  Those little buggers were plucked from the Earth before they were ready.

Cue the chipotle lime butter.

Ingredients

  • 4 ears corn on the cob
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/8 tsp chipotle chile pepper ground
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • zest of 1 lime finely minced
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

  • To cook your corn, you can either grill it, steam it, or you can cook with my desired method, simply boiling it for about 5 minutes in salted water (shuck the corn first).
  • While your corn boils, melt the butter and whisk in all the other ingredients to combine. Brush it over the corn while it is hot. Mmm….much better.
