Spicy Pecans With Extra Spicy & Lemon Pepper Seasonings

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Manami

We're making these for some of the family members' that have contributed to "our home" throughout the year. Haven't tasted these as yet, but the kitchen crew liked them. (Shouldn't eat spicy foods -- that doesn't mean I obey all the time!).

OMG! What naughty but addictive nuts! I loved these - they were just the right hint of spiciness with sweetness! I live in France, so Mrs.Dash is not available - so I used a local lemon pepper seasoning and a local Cajun spice seasoning mix - with great success! I only made a quarter of the recipe, as I am by myself at the moment and did not want to be TOO tempted! Made for the Spicy Photo event in the photos forum. Thanks! FT:-)
