Wonderful flavor! It took a bit longer than 30 minutes for us to grill under tender.

I used parsley instead of cilantro, since It’s what I had on hand, good option if your not a cilantro fan. Great flavor and easy! A definite keeper!

We thought this recipe was great! We did not grill the corn in the husks, but rather placed them directly on the grill. ( Our preference!) A new favorite and something we'll be enjoying often this summer!

I halved the recipe, and when the corn was done, I let it cool and took it off the cob. We prefer to eat it from a bowl. I added the lime, chipotle butter to the bowl and used parsley instead of cilantro. The best!!! A keeper!!!!

I baked the corn 20 minutes and used just 4 ears as that what I had on hand! I'd made the chipotle-lime butter and spread half on ears of corn, then covered and baked the corn at 400o F. Then I'd uncovered the corn and brushed with remaining butter mixture. I baked 5 minutes longer. I also rolled the baked ears of corn in the melted pools of butter on a prepared foil-lined baking sheet and the corn was delicious! delowenstein

We made this last weekend while camping and everyone loved it! I made the butter in advance so it was ready when we were ready! Easy and delicious!

Very good! I halved the recipe, then wished I hadn't. It would be great cold, cut off the cob for salads!

I'm usually a purist when it comes to corn on the cob, but I'm so glad I tried this recipe! A great flavor combo, just the right amount of spice and a nice alternative for a picnic meal .

This was amazing! we love grilled corn, but this topped what we've had in the past. We cooked it on a charcoal grill for the 4th of July...so good
