Chipotle Compound Butter

IMAG0595 (1)

I love the smokiness of chipotle. I was even on a big chipotle pepper kick for a while. I added chipotle peppers, seeds removed, and extra adobo sauce to everything. To add that great smokey chipotle flavor to my steak without too much of the spicy heat I decided that making a chipotle compound butter would be mouthwatering. I added fresh cilantro to give it a more Mexican flare, that and I love cilantro and add it to anything I can.

I prefer a grilled steak cooked to a beautiful medium-rare. How do you prefer your steak? Remember that compound butters are wonderful on more than steak….try it with pork and chicken too. Even try my Chipotle Compound Butter with corn on the cop, as a dollop on mashed potatoes or served with steamed vegetables. Let me know of the fun and flavorful ways you have used my Chipotle Compound Butter recipe! I also have other great savory compound butters you should try; Country Dijon & Thyme Compound Butter and Sundried-Tomato and Bacon Compound Butter.
