Cooking with Banshee: Sweet Chipotle Butter

Grilling season is in full gear.  Of course, meat is the feature of any cookout, but a special topping can really set your backyard barbecue apart.  That is where Sweet Chipotle Butter comes in.  And did I mention it contains bacon?  This sweet and spicy butter is a perfect topping for steak.  It is also a delicious topping for a baked potato or corn on the cob.  Its uses are only limited by your imagination.

Butter Ingredients:
6 slices thick cut bacon
1/2 cup molasses, divided
1/4 cup chipotle flavored hot sauce
     (I used Horsetooth Smokestack Lightning)
8 Tbs softened butter

Butter Directions:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Brush the bacon with 1/4 cup of molasses and 1/8 cup of chipotle hot sauce.  Bake the bacon until it is cooked through but not crispy.  Approximately 12-16 minutes.  Place softened butter into a mixing bowl.  Chop bacon and place in mixing bowl with butter.  Add remaining ingredients.  Mix and refrigerate.

Serve on steak, potatoes or vegetables.  Enjoy!
