      Directions

      Heat grill over high heat.

      Place the corn on the grill, close the cover and grill for 15 to 20 minutes, turning every 5 minutes, or until kernels are tender. Remove from the grill, let cool slightly, remove husks and cut into 1-inch rounds.

      Combine the butter, chipotle, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper and honey in a food processor until smooth.

      Skewer the corn onto 1 skewer (so the corn lays flat), and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 2 to 3 minutes per side until slightly charred. Remove and immediately brush with the butter and garnish with chopped cilantro.
