Grilled Chipotle Lime Corn

This easy grilled corn recipe is just about enhancing the already sweet nature of sweet summer corn on the cob. This version reminds me of Mexican street corn on the cob in that it’s casual and relaxed, very informal, but the lightly spiced chipotle compound butter adds a smoky nuance that’s missing in the Mexican street corn.
