Corn on the cob never had it so good! This velvety avocado butter melts in your mouth and tastes fantastic with any sweet corn. Try it with white, yellow, or both on one ear, such as the favorite "Peaches and Cream" variety.
In a small saucepan combine ancho pepper, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons water; cook on low heat, covered, for 10 minutes or until pepper turns soft. Drain and cool. Remove stem and seeds of pepper. Finely chop pepper and combine with softened butter or margarine.
Slightly mash the avocado with the salt. Stir into ancho butter. If desired, spoon into small mold or cup lined with plastic wrap; cover and chill.
Remove husks and silk from ears of corn. If desired, leave a few leaves of the husks intact for presentation. In a large saucepan cook corn, covered, in a small amount of boiling water for 5 to 7 minutes. Drain. Grill on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 10 minutes, turning several times. Remove butter from mold. Remove plastic wrap. Serve corn with ancho-avocado butter. Makes 6 servings.
