Grilled Corn with Chipotle Butter

  • FAST

For Mario Batali, the contrast of sweet corn and spicy chipotles reminds him of the unbeatable combination of tortilla chips and salsa. This dish is incredibly simple to make, especially because the rich, spicy butter can be prepared ahead of time.

  1. 1 1/2 sticks (6 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
  2. 2 canned chipotle chiles—stemmed, seeded and minced, plus 1 tablespoon sauce from the can
  3. 1 large garlic clove, minced
  4. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  5. 8 ears of corn, shucked
  1. Light a grill. In a medium bowl, blend the butter with the chipotle, adobo sauce and garlic and season with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature.
  2. Grill the corn over a medium-hot fire, turning often, until nicely browned, about 12 minutes. Serve the corn hot off the grill with the chipotle butter.
Make Ahead The chipotle butter can be refrigerated overnight. Let return to room temperature before serving.
