Grilled Corn with Roasted Red Pepper Butter

Sue L


Grilled Corn with Roasted Red Pepper Butter (Choclos Aji Asados) is an Argentinean roasted corn with a sweet and smoky red pepper butter. Grilled corn loved most everywhere, but usually in SA, aji amarillos are the peppers of choice, which are very spicy. Argentina goes more for the milder, sweeter peppers which gives the flavor of this butter a different twist.
