Salmon: Whisk together honey, ancho chili powder and mustard in a small bowl and season with salt and pepper.
Preheat nonstick saute pan over high heat. Brush salmon with oil on both sides and season with salt and pepper.
Place salmon in the pan, skin-side down and cook until golden brown and a crust has formed, about 2 to 3 minutes. Brush the top of the salmon with some of the ancho glaze, flip over, and continue cooking about 2 minutes longer, until a crust has formed and the salmon is cooked to medium.
Remove salmon from the pan, glazed-side up and brush with some more of the ancho glaze. Spoon some of the Spicy Black Bean Sauce onto a plate, drizzle with some of the Roasted Jalapeno Crema and set the salmon in the center, glazed-side up.
Black Bean Sauce: Combine the beans, onion, garlic, chipotles and cumin in a medium saucepan; add cold water to cover by an inch. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until beans are tender. Add more water if the beans appear dry.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer mixture to a food processor. Add 1 cup of the cooking liquid and process until almost smooth; sauce should be a little chunky. Season with salt.
Roasted Jalapeno Crema: Place crema and jalapenos in a food processor and process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
