These nuts improve with standing. The first time I put several in my mouth, I was left with a three alarm fire for hours! I've calmed these down quite a bit. This recipe was adapted from a 1972 Sunset cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat chiles, minced garlic, and olive oil in a heavy pan for 1 minute. Stir so the chiles won't scorch.
  2. Mix in the peanuts and stir over medium heat, or spread on a cooky sheet and bake in a 350 degree oven for 5 minutes or until slightly brown.
  3. Sprinkle with kosher salt and chile powder.
  4. Mix well and store in a covered jar or tin along with the whole garlic cloves, at least a day before serving.
