  • Serves1/2 Cup

Ingredients

    • 8 ounces butter, melted
    • 1 teaspoon chipotle paste  or more to taste**
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon -- pref. freshly -- ground
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

Whisk the Chipotle Paste, cinnamon, and salt into the liquid butter. Add lime juice, starting with 1/2 teaspoon, adding more to taste. For a spicier butter, add more Chipotle Paste. The vegetables will really soak up the heat of the butter, so it should be fairly hot but not overpowering.
