What Makes This Pinworthy?

If you enjoy corn on the cob, this recipe is a must-try- it takes an already delicious side dish and makes it phenomenal. The butter spread is the true star of this recipe- it imparts just the right lime and cilantro flavors, and it pairs well with the paprika and chili powder seasonings.

Making a side dish doesn’t get much easier than this. Simply grill or roast the corn and then spread the butter mixture over it- it is truly that easy! For extra flair, consider sprinkling a bit of extra minced cilantro on top of the corn ears.
