Chipotle Butter

Linda Farnsworth Recipe

By Linda Farnsworth LindaLilacs

A dab of this spicy, creamy butter on a tender steak, burger, or corn on the cob is all you'll need for super flavor! Even slather on crusty bread and grill or broil until golden for your family - they'll love it.

I use this on everything. Fish, veggies...and just got a brainstorm to put it on popcorn. Woohoo!

(Adjust the heat by adding or taking away some of the pepper.)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a wonderful addition to any meal! Perfect on warm bread or slathered across corn on the cob. Yummers!


1/2 c
butter, softened
canned chipotle peppers, diced (seeds removed, if desired)
2 Tbsp
sauce that comes with the peppers
1 Tbsp
freshly squeezed lime juice
1 Tbsp
chopped, fresh cilantro
garlic powder


In a small bowl whip the butter, with an electric mixer, until smooth and fluffy. Add the minced peppers, chipotle sauce, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic powder. Whip until incorporated. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and chill. (The longer it sits, the deeper the color and richer the flavor.) Just before serving put a teaspoon of the cold butter on cooked steak or burgers and allow it to melt over the top. For bread, leave softened for easier spreading. Makes 24 servings.
