Hot-N-Spicy Pecans – May Need to Double This One!

Hot-n-Spicy PecansIf you’re looking for a treat to take to a party, try these Hot-n-Spicy Pecans. They have just the right touch of sweet with a kick to it. You may think that 4 cups makes a lot of pecans, but these don’t tend to stay around very long. Finding chipotle powder may be the hardest part. I found it in the bulk section at one store. I also found some that was called “Ground Chipotle Pepper.”

Each time I make these, I think they should have more chipotle powder, but my hubby says no. You may want to use less chipotle powder at first, especially if you have kids that will be eating them!

Hot-n-Spicy Pecans

  10. Spread pecans on the prepared cookie sheet into a single layer.
