An easy flavored butter with lime, jalapeno, cilantro, and garlic. Perfect for cornbread along side a hot bowl of chili.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) real butter, at room temperature
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (low fat is fine, avoid fat free), at room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely minced garlic
  • zest from one large lime
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice (more to taste, if desired)
  • 12 teaspoons finely minced jalapeno
  • 23 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Beat butter and cream cheese together until well blended and light and fluffy. Add in garlic, lime zest, lime juice, jalapeño, and cilantro. Mix until everything is well distributed.
  2. Spread on bread or corn bread. When not in use, store in fridge and bring to room temperature before serving again.
