{chipotle-lime compound butter}

I've had flavored or compound butter on my to do list ever since Bon Appetit's October issue which gave size different recipes for it.  Last night I whipped up the chipotle-lime butter to go along with some new mexico rubbed pork loin chops.  Making compound butter is incredibly easy and quick, you could make all of the different recipes from the original article in less than an hour.  The best part is compound butter can keep for up to 3 months in your freezer so you can spend an afternoon trying out all the recipes and have them at your cooking disposable.  You can use compound butter to add flavor to a variety of dishes.  While this particular flavor is best suited for pork, you could also use it to saute vegetables or even as a fun alternative to regular butter on crostini and toast.
