chili lime spiced almonds


My husband always surprises me with what he brings home from the store.  I do probably 99% of the shopping in our house, but every once in awhile I have him stop for something, or he decides to stop on his own.  Back in January, he went out to run some mysterious errands.  He came home with a bag full of nuts.  And by bag full, I mean Target sized bag full.  Apparently somewhere had a sale on Pistachios, so he went to stock up.  He LOVES pistachios.  He also loves a good deal.  So why not pick up mass quantities, they are sale?! Along with pistachios he picked up one lone bag of Chili Lime Almonds.  He and my 7 year old went to town on those almonds.  I was very surprised how much my son liked them.

About a week later Black Peppercorn posted a recipe for Chili Lime Peanuts.  I immediately pinned the recipe and knew I was going to make it with Almonds.  Well, I finally got around to it.  These were so easy!!  Like 5 minutes of work, easy.  I am not a huge nut lover, but I know they are really good for you.  So these are great to have around for a quick afternoon snack.

You can adjust the heat level with these by adding more cayenne.  The amount called for just gives it a tiny background heat.  Not too much for my 7 year old who does not like hot things.  So if you are sharing with just adults, I would double it.

  1. I rarely buy nor make flavored nuts because I simply can not stop eating them!
    Boy, how I love snacking on them and then I wonder how I earth I can’t get rig of the “baby weight”

  2. These sound so tasty! I love almonds! I need to try making my own spiced nuts. Sounds so easy!

  3. Chile and lime is a great combination! I find myself eating almonds for breakfast, lunch, and snacks – quick, easy, and healthy 🙂 Happy Mother’s Day, Erin!

  4. I buy the thai chile lime cashews from Trader Joe’s and absolutely love them! These remind me a little of them, so I know that I would love them… have to save and try these!

  5. Yum! I am the only one in my family that likes nuts, so I would happily eat a target-sized bag of these. I also love how easy they are, perfect party food!

  6. I love the flavors used here! I would imagine they would go over really well in my household…addicting no doubt 🙂

  7. I made these and they were totally burned at 18 minutes. Stupidly for me, I wasn’t keeping an eye on them. Don’t go beyond 15 and start checking at 12. Mine are ruined and inedible.
