I made as stated other than I had to use worcestershire sauce instead of A-1. I'm making more to give as gifts!

I made these pecans for a Mardi Gras party and they seemed to go over pretty well. I sprinkled the Tony Chachere's on pretty liberally and didn’t think it was too spicy, so shake away!

This was super easy, and a great recipe for spiced nuts. Unfortunately, I didn't have pecans like I thought, so I had to substitute tamari almonds, which tasted great. I can't wait to make this properly with the pecans, though. Made for PRMR Tag Game.
