RECIPE: Grilled Corn with Hotlips Chili Butter

No matter what time of year it is corn is the one veggie that is always available.  Corn is a great source of fiber, folate, vitamin C and just in case you didn’t know it already, it’s a wonderful source for whole grains!  If those reasons aren’t enough, sweet corn is DELICIOUS!  We eat corn year round and I have even shared how to cook corn on the grill in previous posts.  Today I’m going to share a recipe I got for the SunshineSweetCorn.com site for a unique flavored butter recipe to add to your corn (grilled or not).

Grilled Corn with Hotlips Chili Butter

Diane Morgan—Author ofDressed to Grill


  • ¼ cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch ground red pepper
  • 6 ears fresh supersweet corn, husked

Preheat outdoor grill or broiler.  In a small bowl, combine butter, cilantro, salt, chili powder, sugar and ground red pepper.  Brush corn lightly with mixture; grill, turning occasionally, until some kernels turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to platter; brush with remaining chili butter. Serve with grilled chicken and red pepper kabobs, if desired.

YIELD: 6 portions

When I have left over corn I cut it off the cob and mix it with the Hotlips Chili Butter.  It’s delicious even left over.  Here is a great video that tells you exactly how to take corn off the cob with ease:
