3-ingredient chipotle corn on the cob

Add some extra smoky flavour to your barbecue spread with this easy chipotle corn on the cob. Smothered in spicy butter and wrapped in foil, the corn becomes buttery and tender as it cooks. There’s a handy ingredients list at the bottom of the page for everything you need.

  1. Mix

    Add 80g softened butter and 2 tbsp chipotle chilli paste to a small bowl, then mash and mix together until combined.

  2. Spread and wrap

    Cut 4 large squares of foil and place a corn on the cob in the centre of each. Brush or spread most of the chipotle butter over the corn (reserving some to serve), then wrap up each piece in the foil, twisting the ends (like a cracker) to secure.

    Spread and wrap
  3. Barbecue

    Place the foil parcels on the grill of a preheated barbecue and cook for 35-40 mins, turning occasionally, until tender.

  4. Serve

    Carefully unwrap the foil parcels. Brush with the reserved butter and serve hot, with napkins for buttery fingers!
