Cinnamon Chipotle Butter

Use this simple spicy Cinnamon Chipotle Butter on steamed vegetables. I've used it as a dip for fresh apples.  If you can't find chipotle paste you can easily make your own. The recipe link is in the ingredient list on this page.

Ingredients

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.

Chile Paste
Click to see instructions for making guajillo paste and substitute chipotle chilis but they will need longer to hydrate. The recipe will work for any dried chile for which you'd like to make a paste. 

Another Chipotle Paste Alternative

**You can substitute 1 teaspoon chipotle in adobo sauce (blended to a thick paste).
