Corn with Jalapeño Lime Butter

Corn with Jalapeño Lime Butter

Spice up your side dishes with a delicious flavored butter that combines a touch of jalapeño heat with the refreshing citrus tones of fresh limes. We absolutely love it on grilled corn, but it's a great topping for other fresh or frozen cooked vegetables.
