Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 12 minutes
Makes: 6 servings



  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely minced canned chipotles plus 1/2 teaspoon sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 ears fresh corn in husks
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Lime wedges (optional)


1. Combine the butter, lime zest and juice, chipotles and sauce, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
2. Heat a grill to medium-high. Remove outer husks from corn, leaving just a few of the innermost layers. Gently pull those down, remove the silks, and pull the husks back up. Lightly mist grill with cooking spray. Cook corn 8 to 12 minutes, turning often, until crisp-tender and lightly charred.

3. Strip away husks; brush corn with butter mixture. Serve with lime wedges if desired.
