An undeniable indulgence, these salted potato chips are coated in honey butter with a smoky kick of chipotle chili powder.

Why It Works

  • Honey-butter marries with salted potato chips to create an over-the-top sweet-savory snack experience.
  • Smoky chipotle powder adds a layer of complexity, and helps balance out the honey's sweetness.
  • Yield:Serves 4 to 8 as a snack
  • Active time: 5 minutes
  • Total time:5 minutes

  1. 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.
