Chipotle Spiced Pecans
What's your Take?

Homemade spiced nuts are holiday treat welcomed by everyone.  I make these every year and place them on my dining room table for guests to enjoy during holiday parties, pot lucks and get-togethers.  The spicy chipotle twist usually surprises their taste buds but come back to devour some more every single time.  Make a batch for your holiday gatherings and I guarantee these tasty nuts will disappear immediately from the serving bowl.

What you'll need

  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 pound pecan halves, unsalted
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

How to make it

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  2. In a medium bowl combine honey, butter, chile powder, salt.  Stir, mixing all ingredients.

  3. Place pecan halves in a separate large bowl and add honey mixture.  Toss to combine.

  4. Brush cookie sheet with olive oil. Spread pecans evenly on pan.  Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

  5. Remove from oven and transfer nuts to a separate parchment lined baking sheet to cool.
