Red Chile Glaze
- 12 dried New Mexico red chile pods
- 3 cups boiling water
- 2 cups honey
- 2 tablespoons red chile powder
- 2 tablespoons cumin
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.
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.
This glaze is excellent on grilled fish, roasted or grilled chicken, or roast pork.
