Fresh cilantro and chili powder are two of the feisty ingredients in Hotlips Chili Butter, perfect for slathering on supersweet corn before and after grilling.


  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Pinch ground red pepper
  • 6 ears Sunshine Sweet corn, husked


Preheat outdoor grill or broiler.  In a small bowl, combine butter, cilantro, salt, chili powder, sugar and ground red pepper.  Brush corn lightly with mixture; grill, turning occasionally, until some kernels turn golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Remove to platter; brush with remaining chili butter. Serve with grilled chicken and red pepper kabobs, if desired.
