chili pepper butter

Making a simple compound butter is easy. The key is to make sure that the butter is really softened so that it mixes really easily with whatever ingredients you use to combine with it. This particular butter is great on grilled corn or served with cornbread.

1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
1/4 small serrano chile pepper, seeded and finely minced, or to taste*
1/4 small jalapeño, seeded and finely minced
Salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper

In a small bowl, combine butter, serrano and jalapeño peppers until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Place butter in a serving dish and refrigerate until ready to use.

Makes 1/4 cup.

*Serrano chiles are hot so use less if you want this compound butter to have a little less heat.
