  2. Boil the corn in a large pot of salted water for around 10 minutes.
  3. meanwhile, de-seed the chili. Discard the stem and then finely chop the chili.
  4. melt the butter and add the chili, salt, and pepper.
  5. Drain the corn and pat dry.
  6. grill the corncobs on medium heat until they are completely tender.
