I made these for a bbq and they were devoured. I only used 1 T. of crushed red pepper, that seemed perfect to me, I don't like super spicy. Will surely be making these again and again.
I apologize for not reviewing sooner-I have made these several times, always to raves. They are my husband's favorite addictive treat and so easy! Thanks for posting
I used 1 tablespoon of crushed pepper, since I didn't know how hot they'd be. Freshly made, they are nice and bright. But if they get hotter upon standing, I think that 1 tablespoon will suit us just fine! They have a wonderful flavor. They are a tad oily, but I kept blotting with paper towels, and they seem fine. I don't think I'd cut back on the oil because it looked like the crushed pepper needed to cook in quite a bit of oil to keep from scorching. Thank you for a snack I know I'll be making every now and then.
Good without the garlic at all too. I made them for my fiance and omitted the garlic completely and he had two request for the recipe from people he works with.
Brought these to a New Year's Eve party and the spice lovers thoroughly enjoyed them (too much for my delicate tastebuds though). I made them as written and it was very easy. However, next time I will use a tad less oil. Cooled them on several sheets of paper towels in a jellyroll pan. The spice lovers thank you.
I've been looking for the right hot peanut recipe. This is it! So easy! When they cooled, I just put them back into the container they came in. I made sure to mark it "HOT" so my kids didn't get a big surprise. This is a recipe I'll share for sure!
These peanuts were awesome! Made them for New Years party and received rave reviews-especially from the spice lovers. Instead of salt I used Tony Chacheres Cajun Seasoning. Yummy!
