Grilled Corn with Jalapeño-Lime Butter

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:04
  • Estimated Cost $8.00

Simple, bold, smoky and sweet, this decadent way to serve corn is everything I crave. Perfect alongside a barbeque or alongside tacos. This recipe works well with white or yellow corn.


  • 4 ears corn, shucked, cleaned and halved $2
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter $1 for a stick
  • 1/2 jalapeño, diced finely $0.50
  • pinch salt Pantry
  • few sprigs cilantro, chopped $1 for a bunch
  • juice and zest of 1/2 lime $0.50
  • 2 tbsp cotija cheese (optional) $3 for 4 oz.

Recipe Serves 4-6


  1. Heat a grill or grill pan over high heat. Grill corn pieces for 2 minutes on each side, or until light charring develops.
  2. While corn grills, melt butter in a small sauce pan. Add jalapeño, salt, lime, cilantro, lime juice and zest and remove from heat.
  3. Drizzle butter mixture over grilled corn pieces. Garnish with cotija.

Made this last night… it was delicious! How would you go about making this with whole corn (not on the cob) without it swimming in butter? Alternatives?

This was an awesome recipe! I made it as part of the mothers day dinner we did for my boyfriend’s mom and she loved it. I don’t have a barbecue, but a george foreman grill worked great.

This was fantastic!!! I made this for a poker party that we had and people loved it. Great choice, much better than corn on the cob and butter. :)
