Corn in Cilantro Lime Butter (Equivalent)



  • 3 ears of corn, shucked
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/4 cup diced cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup butter (or the equivalent of your choice so it can be dairy free/vegan; I used light butter) at room temperature

What to do:

  • Preheat the oven to 400F
  • Mix the cilantro, lime, salt, and cayenne with the butter
  • Spread it on the corn (I just smeared it on top because I figured it would melt and cover the rest in the oven)
  • Wrap each in aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes (I think you could lay them out on a 9×13 glass baking dish and cover that with foil to cut down on the waste, but I didn’t try it)

There’s leftover melted yummy butter.  We’ll probably dip tortillas in it and crisp them on my cast iron skillet.  Yum!


Corn & Bell Pepper Chili

All my best-tasting chili looks like dog poop.  Sad, but true.  I can look past it, but if you’re feeding it to someone who objects to food looking comparable to canine waste, try dressing it up with shredded cheese, fresh tomatoes, sour cream, croutons, and/or slice avocado.  Oh, how I wish I weren’t allergic to avocado!

Corn & Bell Pepper Chili


  • 2 ears of sweet corn, slice the kernels off (tricky stuff!)
  • 1 can slightly drained kidney beans
  • 1 can slightly drained black beans
  • 1 lb ground turkey (totally optional)
  • 1 can stewed tomatoes (I can’t wait for my garden tomatoes to ripen!)
  • 1 small can tomato paste
  • 2 green bell peppers, diced
  • 2 small white onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon jalapeno sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon seasoning mix (your choice)

Dump everything into a 4-6 quart slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
