Green Chili, Garlic and Lime Compound Butter

Corn on the cob is one vegetable side dish my entire family loves... even the picky eater.   During the summer we eat a lot of corn since it is in season, but I wanted to spice it up with some special compound butter.  I wasn't sure if the spicy compound butter would be well received by the kids, but I knew my husband and I would love it.  Well, it was a home run for the entire family because the kids were clamoring for more compound butter.  The funny thing is they acted like I did some kind of magic by taking a regular stick of butter and making it so fancy.  Even my husband was pretty impressed with this special butter and complimented me on it.  If they only knew it took a few seconds of work.... but I'll keep the mystery going a little longer...   It never hurts to get showered with compliments. :)

1 stick of no salted added butter at room temperature
1 chili (serrano or jalapeno) seeded and finely minced
juice of half a lime (to taste)
1/8 tsp of granulated garlic powder
salt and black pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to the softened butter and mix well. Take a spatula and scrap all butter onto a large piece of plastic wrap.   Roll into a log and secure ends of wrap.  Place in fridge overnight until set. Slice and serve.  You can use this on bread, vegetables or any grilled meats. Enjoy.
