There’s nothing quite like grilled corn – especially if it’s slathered with spicy buttery goodness.

Grilled Corn with Jalapeño Honey Butter

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 10 minutes  |  Cook Time: 20 minutes  |  Serves: 8


Jalapeño-Honey Butter

  • 2 medium-sized jalapeño peppers
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt


  • 8 ears shucked corn
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup Cotija cheese, crumbled
  • pinch of chili powder


  1. Prepare the butter by lighting an outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Add the peppers directly onto the grill grates and grill for about 5-7 minutes, or until charred on all sides. Remove from the heat and let the peppers cool for about 10 minutes. When cool enough to handle slice the peppers in half and removed the seeds. Dice the peppers and add them to a bowl along with the butter, honey and salt. Mix until well combined.
  2. Place the corn on the (already preheated) grill. Cover, and cook until lightly charred, turning occasionally. About 10 minutes.
  3. Place corn on a serving platter and brush with the jalapeño-honey butter and sprinkle with chili powder, Cotija cheese, cilantro and a pinch of salt.


*Store extra butter in the fridge for two weeks
