I've made this recipe several times since coming across it, and the results seem to get better and better. It's light, fast, and offers a fair amount of heat. As a dietitian, I have to question the accuracy of the nutritional information, however. 1 serving is supposedly 129 calories. However, 1 ear of corn is typically 100 calories, and 1/2 tb butter is 50 calories, so each serving is much more likely to be in the 160-180 calorie range.
Grilled Corn with Chipotle-Lime Butter
From EatingWell: June/July 2006
Fresh lime and smoky chipotles makes this compound butter the perfect match for sweet corn. When the corn season is over, try a bit melted on some grilled fish or chicken.
4 Reviews for Grilled Corn with Chipotle-Lime Butter
Looking for a way to make corn without heating up the kitchen on a hot summer day? This recipe is a sure bet! Corn is easily prepared. The Chipotle-Lime Butter compliments the grilled corn so well and was such a big hit with our guests they spread it on their meat as well!
Tip: we spread just a little of the Chipotle-Lime Butter on each cob before we grilled it, to let it soak up some of the flavours as it cooked.
Amazing, mouth-watering! Fresh and luscious. We look forward to it every summer!
The taste sensation of the lime and chipotle in the butter on fresh corn is such a treat, it's hard to believe this is so easy to make. I used really good butter and super-sweet corn. I can hardly eat sweet corn any other way any more.
