Use this slightly spicy, flavored butter for grilled meats with a Latin flavor. Top meat right off the grill with a tablespoon or so. Make for day of use.

This went fantastic over grilled fish and chicken. I made a whole grilled chicken rubbing this butter under the skin. Really perked up the flavor. I took someone's earlier suggestions of adding minced garlic and red pepper flakes to this too. Read More

I made this to go with Fajitas and my family loved it. I did add a little bit of Chili Powder and some chopped Garlic. It worked up quick and easy. Read More

This butter is out of this world! We won't consider eating corn on the cob without it... I've even planted my own cilantro to make sure I've got it on hand for this recipe... you won't be disappointed with this recipe... Thanks for sharing!! Read More

This recipe is so simple but soooo good! It's just as wonderful slathered on sliced skirt steak as it is on just-off- the-barbecue rib eye steaks. It does not dissapoint. Read More

I've used this and variations of it on grilled corn on the cob - wonderful! Don't forget to put it on under the husks AFTER soaking (yes I really did do it once) and if the cilantro (or other large leaf herb) is not chopped finely you may want to remove them before serving. Read More

I made this minus the red pepper and spread it on corn-on-the-cob. It livened up an otherwise plain vegetable. Thanks for the idea that I'll use again! Read More

This makes A LOT of butter much more than 16 servings. I used half the butter called for but upped the other ingredients (to taste) to add more zip and flavor. We had about 16 people and they liked it on corn but even using half the butter we had TONS left over. Read More
