  2. Slice into coins as needed.
  3. Place the "coin" on the steak, chicken, seafood or veggies just as they are coming off the grill.
  4. Store the unused butter in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

I made this for dh to put over his "re-fried" steak (read: leftovers), and he loved it! Great summer lunch! The leftovers will be served over grilled shrimp this w/e when our friends are coming for dinner. I'll probably add a little fresh cilantro over the top...

I did reduce the heat factor a bit by using a smaller proportion of chiles to butter, but wwhat a great flavor! Wonderful on grilled meats and shellfish. Thanks, Rita!
