Rate & Comment


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (40g; 45ml)
  • 2 tablespoons honey (30ml)
  • Chipotle chili powder, to taste
  • 4 ounces salted potato chips (115g)


  1. In a large skillet with sloped sides, melt butter with honey over medium heat, stirring to combine. Stir in chipotle chili powder to taste (I use about 6 small pinches). Add potato chips and stir gently until well coated, lowering heat to prevent scorching if necessary. Transfer to a bowl and serve warm.


Chipotle chili powder can vary in intensity and heat from one brand to the next, so it's best to add it to suit your taste.
