Cook honey in a medium saucepan over medium heat until caramelized. In a blender, combine honey, melted butter, orange juice, TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce, and salt; purée until smooth.

In a blender, combine Cotija cheese, heavy cream and lime juice; blend on high for 10 seconds, being careful not to whip the cream.
