- Place your spam slices in the pan to crisp into chips. About 2 minutes each side. (Sidenote: if you have a press use it to prevent the spam from curling and to create an even crispiness.)
- Once both sides are crispy, place in a medium mixing bowl and toss with 1tablespoon of Spiceology X Derek Wolf Adobo Honey blend. Set aside.
- In a small sauté pan on medium low heat, pour in honey and 2 tablespoons of Spiceology X Derek Wolf Adobo Honey blend, heat just enough for the honey to loosen up.
- Pour honey mixture over the spam chips and toss until the honey is evenly covering each chip.
- Serve with White Bean Dip (see recipe).
