This was great, instead of using chile powder I used 2 chipotle chiles and it turned out great!

This was wonderful! I made this with New York steaks and served the steaks and the chili butter with a loaded baked potatoe, and it was scrumptious! I must admit that I cheated and used canned diced green chiles, which tasted great. However, I can only imagine how good this would be using whole, fresh fire-roasted chiles. I will do that next time! Thnaks for a great addition to a nice steak dinner!
