I used parsley instead of cilantro...one of those taste things! Very good recipe.

Wow! This is a keeper! Since it was just 3 of us for a casual family dinner, I just mixed the cilantro, lime juice and peel into reduced fat margarine, and it was still fantastic. (I'll use the chilled butter log for company). If you don't have any cotija, parmesan can be subbed and it really boosts the flavor.

This butter was a HUGE hit at my last BBQ! The tanginess of the lime and the freshness of the cilantro take this over the top. It is even good served on steaks.

This was a nice change from plain butter. You just want to make it when the flavor does not compete with your menu.
