How to Make It

Step 1    

Toast ancho chiles in a small skillet over medium, turning often, until they start to blister, about 4 minutes. Transfer chiles to a bowl and cover with boiling water. Let stand for 15 minutes. Drain well and finely chop.

Step 2    

Mash butter with chopped chiles, chives, lime zest, salt, garlic, crushed red pepper and black pepper. Roll butter in parchment; freeze until firm.


Grate over chicken noodle soup or roasted tri-tip.
