French Bread With Chipotle Lime Butter

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by WiGal

From Paula Deen. I have doubled her chipotle amount b/c when I made it I could not taste it. Flavors would be more intense if the butter mixture was made earlier in day.

I had to smile at's not often that I mess up on the ingredients...but I did this time...I read the chipotle chile pepper as chipotle chile powder...which btw I have on when it came time to prepare the recipe...I was a bit shocked that I didn't have the peppers to mince...even with that error hubby and I loved the tangy heat of the butter...I did cut the recipe down to serve 3...I buy those small french rolls from Costco and freeze till ready to worked time I might even use those chilie peppers too!...thanks for posting the recipe...=)
