Glazed Chile-Spiced Baby Carrots
By Chef Tom Fraker



Mix it up a bit by using half carrots and half parsnips

3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 large fresh jalapeño chile peppers, stems and seeds removed, finely diced
¼ cup packed brown sugar
1 pound thin carrots, ends trimmed
Salt

Heat butter and oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chile, brown sugar, and carrots; cook until carrots are slightly softened, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Stir in salt to taste. Serve

Simple Swap: Instead of baby carrots, you can also use regular carrots cut into thick rounds.

Prep Time: 10 min. / Total Time: 25 min.
