Red Chile Honey

Red Chile Honey

Great as a glaze or as an addition to your favorite salsa, our Red Chile Honey makes everything a little extra special.

Ever since we were wed, we’ve had a love affair with the American Southwest. We’ve taken more trips to New Mexico than we care to count, and whether we’re in the little town of Jemez Springs at a rustic bath house and its neighboring cowboy bar, stepping into the past at a Mexican saloon in Albuquerque’s Old Town square, or exploring the wonders of magical Sante Fe and dining at one of the city’s culinary treasures like Pasqual’s, Geronimo or The Shed, we’re always discovering new flavors we want to introduce to our kitchen at home. This recipe for Red Chile Honey is one of the many flavors we’ve brought back with us. We love how simple it is to prepare. Add it to homemade salsas or use it as a glaze for pork, poultry or even roasted vegetables like squash to give your favorite meal something extra special and a kiss of sweet, smoky flavor.
