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.

But if you like spicy food like it do, this is a must try!

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.
