    This butter is great one just about anything. We love it on steak and cornbread!

    AWESOME! I doubled the recipe and tasted it and thought it was way too spicy (and I like spicy) so I doubled the butter. I wish I had tried it on the corn first cause after it goes on the corn it's a lot different! Hmmmm........ So Good! My husband said he'll never eat regular butter on corn again. We even added some to the pasta and it was fantastic!
