HOT candied nutz

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!

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!
