Hey-lo, friends! Wanna know a secret?
Did you just shake your head yes? Fantastic.
Okay, so it’s not a top secret kind of secret, but I’ll let you in on some truth:
I generally write all my posts a day in advance.
If you have ever visited No Spoon Necessary on a Monday or Thursday at 2:01 AM, you probably already assumed this… since my newest recipe is published at 2 AM and up on the interwebs for your viewing pleasure. And heck no am I awake at that hour. I’m entirely too old for those late night shenanigans.
So what does this mean and why in the world is it relevant to you?
Well, it means if I tell you I am taking the entire weekend to myself and not working, I’m lying. 👼 Because I have to at least sit down on Sunday and bang out a few hundred words for a post and get the photos locked and loaded on this here site. It also means that today is Wednesday, and it happens to be Boy and I’s 10 year anniversary… our 10 years together anniversary, not our married anniversary (we have been married exactly 6 ½ years today, in case you were curious).
I’m not one for a whole lot of sap, that’s not really my style, but in the spirit of anniversaries, I want to thank Boy for dealing with me for a decade… sometimes I can be a bit… well, I can be a lot. 😉
So thank you, Boy!
Oh, and thank you for everything you have done for No Spoon Necessary… the endless trips to the grocery store, sifting through piles of produce for the best looking lime, lemon or herbs; all your fantastic hand modeling (see below for proof ⬇️), helping me choose photos at the end of the day… thank you for all your support.
You are the best, Blue and I love you. <–Ha! I rhymed! Two cool points for me. No? Okay. I’ll stop talking now. 😒Alright, that’s about all the mush I can put out into the universe. Let’s talk about food! And not just any food… one of my favorite foods of the summer season – CORN!
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Avocado Sriracha Butter
Please tell me you have been grilling all the corn on the cob humanly possible this summer. You have? Oh good, we can remain friends. ✋High Five.
Fresh corn kissed with the smoky char of the grill is what summer is ALL about. It’s simply EVERYTHING, right?!
Well, grilled corn on the cob is about to get 5.643 million times better. Enter, AVOCADO-SRIRACHA BUTTER.
You guys, this butter is bomb. Herbaceous, rich, luscious, moderately spicy and super creamy, with a light and airy whipped texture. This stuff is avocado at its finest. And it is culinary crack-like deliciously addictive when generously slathered on some fresh grilled corn. A-MAIZE-ING.
Finish the corn off with a good squeeze of tart, acidic lime, an extra dusting of sriracha powder and a sprinkle of fresh cilantro…
Gahhh, I die. And I drool. But mostly I shove epic Grilled Corn with Avocado Sriracha Butter into my pie hole like it’s my job.
Notes, Tips & Tricks for Grilled Corn with Avocado Sriracha Butter recipe:
- I used sriracha powder in my avocado butter, but if you can’t find sriracha powder, or don’t want to use it, you can use regular ‘ole bottled sriracha just the same.
- How much sriracha you add to your butter will depend on your taste. I used a heaping teaspoon of sriracha powder in mine and my butter was moderately spicy. If you don’t like a lot of heat, I’d start with ¼ to a ½ a teaspoon. If you like want your butter blazin’ hot, I recommend starting with 1 ½ teaspoons of sriracha. Either way, you should add the sriracha to taste.
- I used a food processor to make my avocado-sriracha butter, because I wanted a smooth, light and airy butter. However, if you want a chunkier butter, you can use a food processor and pulse the ingredients together, or you can use a bowl and fork to mash the ingredients together.
- This Grilled Corn with Avocado Sriracha Butter is best when enjoyed right after grilling and slathering! Since the butter contains avocado, and the enzymes in avocado will oxidize (causing it to turn brown), I do not recommend making the butter too far in advance.
So, let’s eat ALL the outrageously delicious Grilled Corn with Avocado Sriracha Butter before summer is over and it’s too late!
Until next week friends, cheers – to gettin’ corny with it. <– Sorry, I HAD to.

How to make the best Grilled Corn with Avocado Sriracha Butter at home👇
Grilled Corn with Avocado-Sriracha Butter
- 10 Ears Corn
- 2-3 Limes – quartered, for serving
- 2 Avocados – seeded, peeled and chopped
- ½ Cup Unsalted Butter – softened & cut into 8 pieces
- 1 Lime – juiced (about 2 TBS)
- 1 Clove Garlic – smashed
- 2 TBS Fresh Cilantro , packed – roughly chopped, plus more for garnish
- 1 tsp Sriracha Powder , or more to taste*
- ¼ tsp Cumin
- ¼ tsp Kosher Salt
- Preheat grill to medium. Peel back the husks of corn leaving them intact at the root. Remove the silks and recover the corn with the husks. Soak corn in a large bowl of cold water for at least 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, make the Avocado-Sriracha Butter: Place all ingredients for the butter in a food processor. Process until well combined.* Taste and adjust for seasoning. Set aside in the refrigerator until ready to use.
- Remove corn from water, gently shaking off excess.
- Place corn on the grill, close lid and grill for 7-8 minutes, rotating halfway through for even cooking. Remove from grill and pull back the husk (or completely remove it) and return corn to the gill. Continue grilling corn, turning occasionally, until all sides of corn are charred, about 7-8 additional minutes.
- Remove corn to serving platter and generously brush with the avocado-sriracha butter. Top with a squeeze of lime. Optional - sprinkle with fresh cilantro and sriracha for garnish.
*You can substitute liquid sriracha if you don’t have the powder.
*If you want a chunky avocado-sriracha butter, instead of processing the butter, simply pulse the ingredients to combine. Or you can use a bowl and a fork to mash ingredients together.

Happy anniversary you two!!! 10 years?!? That’s amazing! The big man and I are about to celebrate 4 years of being together this Friday BUT he just proposed to me in Disney World (a complete surprise) this past Saturday!! I have a feeling August will be a busy month. I always find myself writing posts as I’m going to publish them too – I work better under pressure!
Beeta @ Mon Petit Four says
I’m always amazed by your genius creations. You seriously have a knack for finding the best flavor combos and then using them in a totally appropriate, scrumptious way! I would be all over this grilled corn with avocado sriracha butter if I could reach into my screen! <3
Liz | Travelling Table Tales says
Happy (belated) Anniversary!! I hope that you had a wonderful day.
I love corn. And I cannot wait to try this.
Enjoy your weekend (even if you do have to do a little work!).
Keri @ Fashionable Foods says
Happy Anniversary (2 days late!) 🙂 So so sweet!
Corn is my FAVORITE. Like, I squeal when the it starts popping up at the farmer’s markets! Grilled corn is a regular on my plate all summer long, so you know I HAVE to try this avocado-sriracha butter! I have a feeling I’ll be eating that by the spoonful, or at least slathering anything and everything I can with it! Have a great weekend and don’t work too hard 😉
[email protected] says
Happy Anniversary!! that is so awesome! 🙂 and how good does that butter sound! omg!
Awww, Happy Anniversary, Cheyenne! 10 years, yay!! We celebrated 21 (26 together) this year and having someone awesome to share this life with is just the best. So glad that you have that too.
And this corn. I’m drooling and it’s SO creative! Love the buttery combo of avocado and, well, butter, plus that sriracha kick!
Shashi @ RunninSrilankan says
WOA – Happy, happy happy 10 year anniversary to Boy and you, Cheyanne!!! Such a sweet sap-less tribute post this is! Though, you look far too young to have been maried 10 years – what’d y’all do – get married at 10 or something? 🙂 Seriously – CONGRATS – here’s hoping y’alls lives are always filled with happiness and love AND the most “culinary crack-like deliciously addictive” food there is!
Speaking of which, that butter sounds wonderful – I’d never heard of sriracha powder before – so thanks so much!
Hope you and Boy have wonderful weekend!
Lokness @ The Missing Lokness says
Happy Anniversary! Your guys are so sweet! I also have my husband as hand model sometimes. 😀 Hope you guys are doing something fun to celebrate! These corns sure look like a celebration! Perfectly charred with an avocado-sriracha butter? That is genius! Gotta try that!
Kevin | Keviniscooking says
You’re too cute, congrats to you both! I just got three, yes three, new sriracha powders and seasonings in the post and can’t wait to try although one already looks hard as a rock. No bueno, no points there. Anyways… LOVE the avocado sriracha butter! This looks killer, so SUMMER. Pinned & Yum, thanks Chey!
BTW, email me if you like with the answer, but I swear I can never grill and char my corn with out torching the husks, what’s your trick? The photos as super. 🙂
Cathy | whatshouldimakefor.com says
happy anniversary! a decade is a long time to put up with anyone and i hope you guys are doing something fun to celebrate. i will be celebrating this butter. i want to make it and put it on everything….toast, fish, chicken, or maybe just a big ol spoon. this is a winner!!
Grilled corn is THE essence of summer. Absolutely delicious. But with sriracha butter? Oh my goodness, I cannot even IMAGINE, but absolute heaven! Ill definitely be trying this one!
Lauren Gaskill | Making Life Sweet says
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY m’dear!! How exciting! We like to celebrate the day we first started dating as a second anniversary, too. 🙂 Hope you had the happiest of days with boy yesterday. Now to talk about this recipe … you are a genius! Avocado Sriracha Butter? Someone hold me while I faint with pleasure. 🙂 😛
Ben Maclain says
Happy anniversary guys – it’s really great! I’ve got a secret too, Chey (for the record: I didn’t shake my head saying yes when you’re asking but my vote didn’t count). I write my texts normally 1 or a few days in advance. Sometimes that happens a week before I’m planning to post the recipe. Well, I have found recently a few papers with a post written 1,5 years ago. Yup, I am an old-fashioned guy (sometimes just old). I was just inspired but didn’t have computer around me:) Now about serious stuff: this corn looks fantastic! Love this addition of avocado butter. It’s just a perfect summer quintessence, Chey. Have a nice weekend!
Kate @ Framed Cooks says
Congrats – he is one lucky boy!! And, right there with you in spirit on the weekends, cooking and shooting and retouching and writing and whew! xoxo
Megan - The Emotional Baker says
Happy Anniversary!! This corn would make a great side for a romantic dinner at home!
& I hate writing my posts the night before, but it keeps happening that way. I get so stressed knowing I have to get the post up. Hopefully, I’ll get better so I can enjoy my weekend 🙂
Happy anniversary! I count the day my husband and I got together too. It means a lot!
Like you, I write my posts the day before. I wish I could be better, but my day job and family stuff means it gets pushed back a lot. Oh well.
So this corn looks incredibly festive and happy. Such a cool butter! I never woulda thought of it, but now I want it!
Marsha | Marsha's Baking Addiction says
Happy Anniversary of you two being together! 🙂 These grilled corn on the cob with the avocado butter sounds absolutely delicious, wish I could just dig in right now!
karrie @ Tasty Ever After says
Happy real anniversary this time 😉 Can’t believe you’ve been lying to us, saying your taking off when you are really writing on a Sunday! I’ll forgive you if you send me a box filled with 20 ears of corn and 5 pounds of this avocado sriracha butter. So much yum, I can’t stand it. Yay to Boy too! We appreciate all his hard work supporting NSN, especially going back and forth to the grocery store because we know you’ve got him running all over the place. heeheehee 🙂
Aaw happy happy anniversary, girlie!! Hope you and boy have a great time. And yes – less work and more celebrating this weekend! Grilled corn is a must during the summer and I know this batch would be gone in no time at our house! Looks incredible and I LOVE the sriracha butter!
Leslie @ Flora Foodie says
I HAVE been grilling all the corn humanly possible this summer! It’s my FAVE. So delicious. I’ve done some sriracha butters on it, but nothing with avocado too!!! It looks absolutely divine, I am totally on the hunt for some sriracha powder (because awesome) and making this next week.
Jennifer @ Seasons and Suppers says
Corn is at it’s best here right now, so I will definitely be trying this. Loving the sriracha powder
Karen @ Seasonal Cravings says
Happy Anniversary to you and your boy! I love corn that has a bit of char on it. It’s the best and doesn’t last long so I cook it every day (almost). Have a great day celebrating!

Happy anniversary! A decade is a lot and I wish you many more. 🙂
I can’t live without corn, and this looks like an amazing way to enjoy it with that avocado-sriracha butter! Why have I not seen that sriracha seasoning before? I’m getting my hands on that ASAP!
Kathleen | Hapa Nom Nom says
I saw this on FB and immediately thought – GENIUS! Grilled corn on it’s own is amazing, but this avocado butter just sky rocketed this dish out of the solar system! I can’t wait to make this – I’m going to be slathering this on everything from my morning toast to corn and burgers for dinner!
Stacey @ The Sugar Coated Cotted says
So yummy! My hubby and I were going to try grilling our corn this past weekend for the first time and we chickened out, into the pot of water it went. You make it look so easy and I love how you tied the husks back, so fancy 🙂 . This butter is the icing on the cake…I mean corn, lol. Happy anniversary. Take care.
Demeter | Beaming Baker says
Of course! I want to know ALL of your secrets. 😉 So THIS is why you’re always working on the weekends!! Tsk tsk.
Happy 10 year anniversary to you and… what’s his name? I hear it’s Boy. 😉 Lololol. Please tell him thank you for taking care of my dear bestie. Also, for being such a talented Hand Model Extraordinaire. What would No Spoon Necessary be without him? Two points for your rhymes, and two more points for this awesome recipe!! Heck, let’s make it 200 points. What are friends for? 😉 You know I’m gonna be hounding you this weekend to stop working, so… stop working! Thought I’d get that one in sooner rather than later. Pinned! Muah. xoxo
Geraldine | Green Valley Kitchen says
Happy 10 year together anniversary, Cheyanne! I love grilled corn and your avocado sriracha butter sounds divine! I’ll have to look for sriracha powder – I haven’t seen that before. Have a great week!
allie @ Through Her Looking Glass says
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you and Boy. And may there be many many more. You guys make it work!!!! Super happy for you, hope you celebrate big, even if that just means staying in your jammies all day. The corn, is ah-mazing girlfriend. Love everything about it – the char- the sriracha – the cilantro – the lime squeeze. All together, this summer corn is the bomb. Gorgeous pictures. Pinned!!!! Have an awesome weekend my friend! XO
Mary Ann | says
Well Happy Anniversary to you guys Cheyanne!! Hope you both do something special today to celebrate! Second only to tomatoes, corn is my favorite summer vegetable. Jersey corn is gorgeous and juicy and enjoyed as long as we can get it here. This avocado-siracha butter…OMG!! I know I’m going to love it! I’ve got a bunch of friends coming over next week for dinner while Tom and I are on vacation, so I’ll have to try it! Happy weekend!
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop says
There’s nothing better than summer corn cooked on the grill….unless it’s topped with this butter! Seriously this butter is making me drool! I can’t wait to get some corn and try this up right away! 🙂
[email protected]'s Recipes says
Congratulations and happy anniversary, Cheyanne! Those grilled corns look phenomenal !
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy says
Happy 10 year anniversary! That’s a serious achievement. Although, one year is an achievement too!
I only discovered sriracha about a year ago, as it’s not huge over here, but I am obsessed with it now and I am loving finding new ways to use it. Otherwise I just put it on all my food haha.
[email protected] says
Happy happy anniversary!!! I hope you are doing something fun (and relaxing?) to celebrate!!! haha you cracked me up with the 2am comment – staying up that late makes me almost want to cry at the thought of it! Old lady right here! 🙂 ANYWAY this corn sounds amazinggggg. I’m putting in a request now for some in … less than 2 weeks. Maybeeee I should start packing? Ah! Moving is so stressful!! haha
Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kithcen says
Wow! Many congratulations dear Cheyanne. Many more to come! And grilling out together sounds the best thing ever! And these grilled corns look fantastic dear. You had me at the title when I read sriracha butter. Really? Wow! I haven’t heard of this before and now want this badly. I love everything sriracha and avocado so I know I am gonna love it too. Can’t wait to try this. Have a wonderful weekend girl! Cheers!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice says
Ok my mind is blown with this grilled corn! Not only do I live off grilled corn in the summer, but I don’t have to share with my husband, because he’s not the biggest fan (go figure, right?). But now you’ve created an avocada srirach butter?! AMAZING! I can only imagine how good this must taste. I need to try this out soon! Such gorgeous pictures too, friend! Pinned!
Kathryn @ Family Food on the Table says
Aww, happy 10-year anniversary to you guys! Very cool that you’ve been together a whole decade now! And this looks like a fun way to celebrate, knowing how much you both love to grill out 😉 I’ve also been all about the corn this summer – adding it to this, that and everything else. And I didn’t know about sriracha powder, so thank you very much for that gem – can’t wait to track some down and give it a try!! Cheers to summer goodness my friend! XO
