I found this recipe in a magazine several years ago. My kids call it dirty butter sauce because of it's light brown color from the chili powder. They ask for it everytime I serve corn on the cobb. It is absolutely fabulous on any steamed vegetable. I often omit the red pepper to cut down on the heat. It still has just enough pepper for flavor. I also use a chicken base flavoring to make my broth.

This sauce had a good flavor. I grilled my corn and put some over the corn before grilling and also poured some over the corn when I served them. Next time I make this sauce, I will add the red pepper to add a bit more heat. Thanks for posting your recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
