I could eat grilled corn with every meal. Seriously. I love it as a simple side dish and always add leftovers to salads, frittatas, scrambles, and salsas. The sweet, slightly smoky, crisp bite of grilled corn elevates almost any dish in my opinion. And while I am usually content with simple grilled corn, when I want to step things up, this chili lime corn is usually what I am making. A simple zesty butter made with lime juice, lime zest, chili powder, and garlic powder is rubbed on the corn and then it is wrapped up and grilled until nice and charred. Delicious.
