Grilled Honey Chipotle Corn

Grilled Honey Chipotle Corn

Corn on the cob is a classic summer side dish, and this Grilled Honey Chipotle Corn recipe brings a little sweet and spicy flavor to regular corn on the cob.

My favorite way to have corn is on the grill.

The bits of charred corn from the grill are the best!

And this one is made extra special thanks to the easy to make honey chipotle butter 🙂

How to Make Grilled Honey Chipotle Corn

I have four ears of corn that have been shucked.

Also four tablespoons butter and some spicy chipotle chili powder.

And some honey to bring the sweet that balances the spicy chili powder.

Simply melt the butter and add two tablespoons honey and a teaspoon or two of the chipotle powder.

Mix together and set aside.

Brush the corn with olive oil and season with kosher salt and pepper.

And preheat the grill to medium for a few minutes before adding the corn.

Grill the corn for 7 to 8 minutes, turning a few times.

Then brush some of the honey chipotle butter a few times and grill a 3 to 5 more minutes.
