Ingredients

12 dried New Mexico red chile pods

3 cups boiling water

2 cups honey

2 tablespoons red chile powder

2 tablespoons cumin

Directions

  1. Deseed the chiles, and place in a bowl. Reconstitute them by pouring on 3 cups boiling water and allowing them to soak about 5 minutes. Drain the chiles and reserve 1-cup of the liquid.
  2. Process the chiles with the reserved water in a blender or food processor until fine. Strain and transfer pulp into a mixing bowl. Add the honey, chile powder, and cumin and mix well. Refrigerate for 1 hour to blend flavors.
  3. This glaze is excellent on grilled fish, roasted or grilled chicken, or roast pork.
