Outdoor Entertaining Tip of the Month: Honey-Chipotle Grilled Corn

Nothing says summer like sweet corn on the grill. The honey-chipotle flavor gives these golden kernels an extra punch of flavor. Once you try this recipe, you’ll never go back to plain corn on the cob again!

Ingredients
2 canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup mild-flavored honey, such as clover
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ears fresh corn in husks

Preparation
1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium-hot (you can hold your hand 1 to 2 in. above cooking grate only 3 to 4 seconds). Combine chiles, butter, honey, garlic, and salt in a blender and whirl until smooth.

2. Put unhusked corn on grill and cook, turning occasionally, 15 minutes. Husks will blacken. Transfer to a work surface, remove husks, brush ears generously with butter mixture, and return ears to grill. Grill until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Serve warm, with remaining butter.
