  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk in flour to create a paste. Season with salt. Pour in half-and-half, whisking continuously until smooth. Add onion, garlic, ancho chile powder, and cayenne, whisking until incorporated. Add spinach.

  • Set aside 2 tablespoons habanero-flavored cheese. Stir remaining cheese into the spinach mixture and spoon into a small oval baking dish. Sprinkle with reserved cheese and bread crumbs.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes. Turn on the oven's broiler and broil until golden brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
