I added some crushed dried hot pepper and 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar. Made only half the recipe! Might have been a big mistake.

I love spiced nuts and we got a big box of pecans as a Christmas gift. They have been hanging out in the freezer, just waiting for me to do something with them. My husband and I both loved how these turned out. Very zesty, spicy, and so compelling, you can't eat just one. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.

I made these as something to nibble on while waiting for the Turkey on Thanksgiving and everyone gobbled them up. They were so tasty and oh so easy to make!!!!
