Corn on the grill just screams summer and even though it is delicious with just salt, pepper, and butter, this Chili lime corn blows it out of the water. Adding a little extra heat and zest just accents that fresh corn flavor.
Mixing the butter with chili powder, lime zest and a touch of cayenne pepper and brushing it on the corn really brings the corn to a higher level.
In a small bowl, whip together 2 tablespoons of the butter with the lime zest, lime juice, chile powder and cayenne pepper. Set aside.
Using a pastry brush, very lightly brush corn with the 1 tablespoon of the buttery spread, then salt and pepper to taste.
Wrap each ear in aluminum foil and place on a med high grill. Grill for about 20 minutes, turning several times until done to your satisfaction. (Some like it charred and others do not).
Remove from heat and unwrap foil. Using the pastry brush, brush each ear with the remaining seasoned butter. Cut ears into smaller pieces and serve with slices of lime for additional flavor.
