Avocado Butter

At this time of year it is all about the grill. So I am always looking for ways to spruce up any grilled meat. While flipping through a magazine that someone picked up for me at the grocery store check out line called Grill It, I came across a recipe for Avocado Butter. I decided to give it a try. After all, who doesn't love avocados? Not only was this quick to pull together, it was very tasty.

Avocado Butter
Halve, pit, peel, and chop 1 ripe avocado. In a medium bowl combine chopped avocado, 1/4 butter softened, 3 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, 2 tablespoons snipped fresh chervil or parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. Using a fork, gently mash ingredients together and leave somewhat chunky. Spoon mixture in small bowl and chill. Chill until almost firm.
