2.) On low heat, melt 3 lb. butter and add guajillo chilies, garlic, and salt to taste. Cover, and allow the chilies to hydrate and infuse the butter for 30 minutes, making sure not to simmer or brown the butter.

3.) Gently rewarm the lobster meat in the guajillo butter, allowing the meat to steep in the butter for 15-20 minutes.

4.) To assemble one taco, spread butter on a 4.5” Mission® Flour Tortilla and lightly toast in a hot pan or on a flattop grill. Place a leaf of butter lettuce on the tortilla and top with 2 oz. lobster, and an additional drizzle of guajillo butter. Garnish with salt and chives.
