Directions

  • 1 Peel and cut carrots diagonally.

  • 3 Once they are tender, remove carrots from heat and set aside.
  • 4 In a separate pot, melt butter and add sugar.
  • 5 Add chili powder, salt and pepper.
  • 6 Check the seasoning and add more if needed.
  • 7 Combine carrots with this glaze.
  • 8 Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.

These glazed carrots go great with meat dishes, particularly when celebrating a special occasion. I like to serve them for Thanksgiving or for the holidays as a nice side to go along with the turkey. They are the perfect complement to the main dish. If you like spicy dishes, then add a touch more of chili powder. I like it with just the amount listed in the recipe but don’t be afraid to add more, if that’s your taste.
