Chipotle Butter

Linda Farnsworth Recipe

By Linda Farnsworth LindaLilacs

10 Min

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.)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

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

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

I have only just recently discovered the wonders of canned chipotles. They have transformed my Chile, my fajitas and many other wonderful things. It will always be on my pantry shelves from here on in.
