Lime-Chili-Tequila Butter

Yes, hey it's the first post in a while. I'm going to keep it short and sweet, just like the recipe. Just the facts please!

Here's what you need:

2 sticks'a butter
1 jalapeno (finely minced, minus seeds and white crap)
2 oz tequila
1 dash of Cumin powder
1 lime (juice thereof)
A little bit of salt and pepper

Here's what you do:

1) Get the butter to room temp
2) Put butter in a bowl
3) Add all ingredients, mix dem up with a rubber spatula. You might say "but J, the tequila and lime juice don't mix well with the butter!" To that I say "keep mixxing, it'll blend."
4) Place mix in some saran wrap, and wrap it into a cylinder, twisting the ends. Put in the fridge. It will harden into something useful.

Once this good stuff hardens you'll have a fantastic compound butter you can add to steaks, stirfrys, toast or fajitas. Simple yet effective.

Drink mix: Since you already have the tequila out I suggest a man-garita
2 oz tequila
juice of half a lime
couple cubes of ice

Mix er'y thing up in a glass and enjoy. This is what we call a "friendly drink"

Music mix
Rick Ross - Mafia Music

Can I justify this music selection? Probably not. Other than the fact than it's butter and it's Ross the Boss. Everyone likes them both. Seriously though, Officer Rawse has impeccable taste in beat selection.
