Serves: 4 Sweet and spicy chipotle honey roasted carrots make for a perfect autumn side dish using just a handful of ingredients!
2 bunches whole carrots, washed and dried (optional with the stems on)
Drizzle of olive oil
Pinch of salt and pepper
Rizo Bros Queso Fresco, crumbled
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1 tsp adobo sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ cup honey
Pinch black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Drizzle the carrots with olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Toss until all carrots are coated then spread evenly on the baking sheet.
Roast for about 15 minutes until just about fork tender. Remove from the oven and brush each carrot evenly with the chipotle glaze. Roast for about 5 more minutes or until carrots are cooked through. If desired, broil for 1-2 minutes for a little char.
Sprinkle the carrots with crumbled queso fresco and serve immediately.
