Great snack to serve with cocktails. I usually double this recipe.

I have real success with lo-carb dieting, and seasoned Pecans work very well, so I search non-stop for crunchy snacks that fit. I tried this recipe and it ended up being great - after I added more heat. I like spice and as written there wasn't enough for me. So once the pecans were out of the oven I added a combination of cayenne and salt. WOW this is spicy and satisfying! I'm make it again and again.
