Spicy Nuts

Nothing hits the spot like a some spicy, salty nuts.  They are just the right thing for a Super Bowl party, even if the Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers are NOT in the Super Bowl (insert heavy sigh here).  Regardless of sporting events these are a lovely snack, low in sodium and high in delicious nuts. 

These spicy nuts can also be added to salads for an extra crunch.  I used an assortment of nuts, but you can use whatever kind of nuts your heart desires. 

The Ingredients

2 cups mixed nuts
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/8 teaspoon salt

The Tools

a small saucepan
a small bowl
a foil covered baking sheet

The Prep

Preheat the oven to 300°

The Cooking

Warm the oil in a small saucepan over medium heat

Add the spices and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds

Pour the flavored oil over the nuts

and stir to mix

Pour the nuts onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes
