Piri Piri Butter

One day dear sister and I were looking for a way to season some grilled corn on the cob. I suggested we mix Piri Piri Sauce with butter. It was delicious but did not combine very easily. Then I saw Pioneer Woman make Bell Pepper Butter. I thought now that is how you make Piri Piri Butter. It worked beautifully. It is a delicious spicy butter that is great on corn, steak, veggies and even popcorn. It gets it's spice from the bird's eye chilies and the fresh garlic. The red bell pepper adds a fruity sweetness to balance the heat. Now don't be scared to give it a try, it is not too spicy. It is a butter and has all the creamy elements of butter with a little bit of heat. If you are still intimidated, try using a fresno chili instead of the bird's eye chilies. Just be sure to try this recipe. It is amazing!

Piri Piri Butter
Makes about 1 cup


2 sticks salted butter
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
3 bird's eye chilies, sliced
1 clove garlic, minced
Zest of one lime
1/2 tsp. cumin


Put the butter, red bell pepper, chilies, garlic, zest and cumin in a food processor and process until combined. Drain any liquid that may form and use right away. To serve later place the mixture into ramekins, or roll into a log with plastic wrap and chill until needed. For long term storage place plastic wrap roll of butter in a freezer bag removing as much air as possible and store in the freezer.
