Grilled Corn with Creamy Chipotle Sauce

Instead of butter, try this smoky, spicy sauce--it's a savory complement to the sweet corn. To remove the silks from an ear of corn, rub with a damp paper towel or a damp, soft-bristled toothbrush. Though the corn needs to be grilled at the last minute, the sauce can be prepared a day ahead.


6 servings (serving size: 1 ear of corn and 2 tablespoons sauce)
