Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter Recipe
6 ears corn in their husks
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 teaspoon adobo sauce
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ cup cotija cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
- Preheat a gas or charcoal grill to medium–high heat. Soak corn in water for 10 minutes.
- While the corn is soaking, create the chipotle butter by combining butter, chipotle peppers, adobo sauce, and salt in a food processor and pulsing until smooth. Set aside until needed.
- Grill corn for 5 minutes a side until the husks becomes charred and the corn is hot. Allow the corn to rest for 5 minutes then carefully pull back or remove the cornhusks. Spread butter over corn and top with cheese and cilantro. Serve immediately.
