During a family picnic, we added jalapenos and hot pepper sauce to our homegrown corn. Now we spice up the ears every chance we get. —Bernadette Walker, Waco, Texas

  • 4 large ears sweet corn, husks removed
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/4 cup chopped seeded jalapeno peppers


  1. Place each ear of corn on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18x12 in.). Combine butter, thyme, hot pepper sauce and bouillon granules. Brush over corn; sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon jalapenos. Seal tightly.
  2. Grill, covered, over medium heat until corn is tender, 15-20 minutes. Open carefully to allow steam to escape.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
