Butter is notoriously NOT a ‘diet’ food. But in our attempt to never be punished by food again – quality trumps quantity…and a little bit goes a long way in helping us feel pampered and spoiled!
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.
This will last for weeks in the fridge. I use it on everything. It would be FAB! on popcorn!!!
(Adjust the heat by adding or taking away some of the pepper.)
1 stick butter, softened
1-2 canned chipotle peppers, minced (seeded if desired)
2 tablespoons of the chipotle sauce that comes with the peppers
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Pinch 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.
Per Serving: It’s BUTTER for Heaven’s sake!
