I use these awesome nuts on my salads, as a snack, in breading for fish, in rice–the gourmet utility is almost endless! The smoky heat from the pepper works so well with the sweet and earthy flavors of the nuts. I usually do pecans, but black walnuts and almonds rock too! They store very well, so be sure to make a BIG batch the next time your oven is warm!
HOT candied nutz
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Place nuts in a small baking dish. Cover with honey or agave nectar and sprinkle with Ground Chipotle Pepper (we use a LOT, but be careful this stuff is very hot!). Bake for 8-10 minutes (or until golden brown). Be careful not to burn the nuts!
