I adopted this recipe a while ago and have changed the amount of salt. The original recipe called for 1/2 cup which seemed far too much.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium-size saucepan.
  3. Add worcestershire sauce, cumin, sugar, garlic powder and cayenne pepper.
  4. Cook over low heat for 2 - 3 minutes.
  5. Add the nuts and stir to coat evenly with seasonings.
  6. Spread the nuts on an ungreased baking sheet and toast for 15 minutes, turning occasionally.
  7. Remove from the oven and toss with sea salt.
  8. Cool.

These tasted awesome, it is a great basic spice mixture! Next time I'll start with 1/8 cup of salt, adding more as needed, a speck more sugar, and a few drops of liquid smoke.

I loved the combination of spices, but the 1/2 cup salt was too much. Will try again with less salt. Thanks for posting.

I only used 1 cup of almonds as I am by myself at the moment! I still used the full amount of cayenne pepper and cumin however, as I love spicy things. These were delicious and so easy to make. I added sea salt to taste and also a sprinkling of smoked paprika for an extra depth of flavour, Made for Hot and Spicy in the Photos forum, merci HappyBunny! FT:-)
