The honey habanero glaze is SUPER hot. Well, I mean I DID use two whole habanero peppers. So You can easily pull back the heat by only using one.

This is an easy glaze, it’s just butter, honey, your favorite hot sauce (I’m using Franks Hot Sauce) and 1 or two habaneros. I also added a little black pepper, garlic powder, and some smoked paprika. Super simple, and loads of flavor and heat.
