Chipotle Butter

Mmmm.... butter.












































Not just any butter though. Butter loaded with tons of flavor. We've got Irish butter which is all fancy, some chives or green onions, and the star of the show... chipotle peppers! It really gives it a nice heat.

No that there below is not an ear of corn. But it was about to be melted and poured atop some of that corn in the background (I'll write up a separate post for that). And in the future, really anything that I can get my hands on that requires butter. Or is better with butter. Which is pretty much everything. Ok, I guess you can't use this butter in baked goods, that would be a bit odd. But pretty much any kind of savory dish that calls for butter mmk?


 
Chipotle Butter

  • 1 stick salted butter (we used Irish butter)
  • 1-2 chipotle pepper(s) in Adobo sauce, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chives or green onions, finely chopped

Set butter out at room temperature to soften. In a bowl, add butter, chopped chipotles, and chopped chives/green onions. Mix well. Put in fridge to harden, and melt when ready to serve.



Printable Recipe










































It's so easy too. Just chop up some chipotle peppers... you can even do that in your food processor! Slice some chives or green onions... you can just snip away using scissors. And voila, you're good to go and you've got delicious butter to last you a few meals... hopefully it can last that long :)

Linking up here.


Peace, and bacon grease!
