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.)

How To Make chipotle butter

    In a small bowl whip the butter, with an electric mixer, until smooth and fluffy.
  • 2
    Add the minced peppers, chipotle sauce, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic powder. Whip until incorporated.
  • 3
    Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and chill. (The longer it sits, the deeper the color and richer the flavor.)
