Real Men Cook: Grilled Corn with Chipotle Honey Lime Butter

Gluten FreePaleoVegetarian

It’s that time of the week again. Helping Hubbie Time.

For those of you who are new and joining us, “Helping Hubbie” happens once a week here at Joyful Healthy Eats. It basically came about when I had a rough week and wished that Mike had a few recipes up his sleeve so I could take the night off. Sometimes a girl just wants a break … ya know! Enter “Helping Hubbie” Friday. 🙂  On a side note: I would love to know what kind of dishes you wish your husband could make? Who knows maybe it will be the next Helping Hubbie Post.

Ok, we have been building to your husband or significant others recipe collection the past couple of weeks. This week we are adding another side dish, Grilled Corn with Chipotle Honey Lime Butter. There is nothing better than grilled corn…. oh wait… yes there is… Grilled Corn with Chipotle Honey Lime Butter! I promise after you taste this you will never go back to the normal way of making corn.

To get started. Soften 1 stick of unsalted butter. Add zest from one lime to butter.

    1. Hey Suz! So glad you stopped by from MondayFunday! I will say “hurry up summer time for you” but “slow down summer time” for me. We end up getting 100+ temps here in Texas so I’m always praying for fall and winter time to come. Anywho… I hope you can get the grill out soon! 🙂

    1. oh… major bummer. For some reason this got spammed… but glad I found it Alice. I will definitely stop by next week. Thanks for the invite and sorry for the slow response. 🙁
