Calories 176kcal


  • 6 Quart Instant Pot


  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 5 corn cobs, husks removed

Chili Lime Butter

  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1/8 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp chili powder


  • In the base of the instant pot, add the water, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin. Stir to combine.
  • Add the corn cobs to the pot. I like to shake the liner (out of the pot), gently, to get the spices on all of the cobs.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set it to sealing and set on high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Quick release the pressure when done. There is also no harm in letting in naturally depressurize.
  • Using tongs, remove cobs from Instant Pot and set aside.

Chili Lime Butter

  • Melt the butter in the microwave in 30 second intervals until melted.
  • Stir in the lime juice, and spices.
  • Pour over corn cobs


Don't forget to cut the kernels off the leftover cobs and add them to salads!
