  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ pound Hatch Chiles, roasted, peeled and seeded (see instructions no. 1)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  • Prepare the chiles. If you haven't bought your Hatch chiles pre-roasted, here's How to Roast and Peel a Pepper. When the chiles are roasted they will weigh less, about ¼ pound. Keep this in mind if you purchase them pre-roasted. (It's about 2 large peppers.) Very finely chop the chiles and set aside.
  • Mix the ingredients. Add the softened butter to a medium-sized mixing bowl. Add the honey, lemon juice, salt and chopped chiles. Mix until it's completely smooth, and all of the ingredients are fully incorporated.
