Chili Lime Butter

Grilled corn on the cob is sort of a staple around The Hill Hangout when we have a holiday cookout. Tomorrow we’re having a few friends over, so I wanted a new butter to serve on grilled corn so it would be, you know, FANCY. I’d seen chili lime butter recipes floating around ye olde interweb, so I thought I’d give it a try. The ingredients could not be any more simple.

You’re going to blend a stick of butter (softened to room temperature), the juice of a lime, and two teaspoons of chili powder with a blender.

When you have it all thoroughly mixed, you’re ready to transfer it to a ramekin or other small dish. Then place in fridge for a few hours to firm up again.

That’s it.

Told you it was simple.

Serve Chili Lime Butter on your hot, grilled corn for a fun and festive side dish. And also a fancy one.

    Well, golly! That looks like it would be delicious! You know I never had anything “chili lime” until we moved out to California, so I thought it was something exotic and special… but I think I could totally pull this one off! Pinning and can’t wait to try it out!
