Corn Close UpCilantro and lime give these ears of corn a Latin flair.


  • 1/2 cup lightly-packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened


In the bowl of food processor fitted with a metal wing blade, place cilantro, lime peel, salt and hot pepper sauce; process using on and off motions until cilantro is finely chopped, scrapping sides of bowl if necessary. Add butter; process until combined, about 30 seconds. (Or, finely chop cilantro leaves; place in a medium bowl with remaining ingredients; stir until combined.) Serve over hot cooked corn on the cob or other steamed vegetables.
