DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan, heat the oil on medium-high heat until shimmering. Put the chili powder into the oil, and stir into a smooth paste. Allow the mixture to form bubbles around the edges.
  • Pour in the orange juice, and stir to combine. Add cumin, honey, or lime, if using, and boil, covered, for 5 minutes.
  • Uncover saucepan and boil until the sauce changes from burnt orange, to red-orange, to brick red. The sauce should be reduced by half. This will take 10 minutes or so.
  • Turn heat to low. If using chocolate, stir in while still hot but not bubbling.
  • Serve or refrigerate.
