One-up the bottled stuff with a homemade chili butter featuring garlic, cool limes, and sassy ground peppers.

8 - ears fresh sweet corn with husks
1 - recipe Chile Butter (see below)
Green onions, and/or lime

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the corn, untrimmed and in the husks, directly on center oven rack. Bake for 45 minutes or until corn is tender.

Peel back husks and remove silks. Spread 1 tablespoon Chile Butter over corn. Sprinkle with crushed corn flakes. Top with green onions and/or limes. Pass remaining Chile Butter.


Try this for even more char and grilled flavor. For a charcoal or gas grill, grill the corn on a rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat for 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes. A few minutes before serving, remove outer dark husks, peel back remaining husks and remove silks. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the Chile Butter.

To keep grilled corn warm, cover with foil and let stand up to 10 minutes. Store prepared Chile Butter, covered, in refrigerator up to 1 week. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour before serving.
