At the end of Iron Man 3, Pepper Potts has been turned into one of the Extremis, able to generate immense amounts of heat and regenerate almost any injury. Effectively turning her into a very powerful super hero. Why was this never brought up again? There have been at least two movies (Age of Ultron and Civil War) where she coul d have been used nor does she seem to be in Infinity Wars. Was Tony Stark able to "cure" her? Did she blow up?

ETA: Was it just that Gwyneth Paltrow didn't want to be in any more movies and the producers didn't want to Rhodes her?
According to the MCU Wiki:

During the crisis surrounding the Mandarin's terrorist attacks, Potts was kidnapped by Aldrich Killian and injected with Extremis. She was freed by Stark during the Battle on the Norco, and went on to kill Killian herself. Stark cured her of the effects of Extremis, who temporarily gave up being Iron Man just for her.

As the War on HYDRA began, the Avengers needed to be remobilized. Without S.H.I.E.L.D. active to run the team, Stark took over, allowing Captain America to retain field and team leadership while he designed everything else, including creating new armors and rejoining the team himself as an active duty combatant. Sometime after the Ultron Offensive, he and Potts broke off their relationship, which affected Stark and left him wondering why he could not make it work while his father could. However, shortly after the Avengers Civil War ended, Stark and Potts resumed their relationship.
Bolding mine.
