Chipotle Spiced Peanuts

November 04, 2010

Since it’s another big football weekend ahead, and I am entertaining for the Alabama/LSU game, I thought I would try a new peanut snack recipe. I’m hooked on chipotle seasoning, and this simple Chipotle Spiced Peanuts is a winning recipe. It also makes a great holiday food gift idea, and it’s under 30 minutes to prepare. Be sure to start with dry, unsalted peanuts. Have a great weekend everyone! Alison

Chili Spiced Nuts

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes
Yield: 12 to 14 servings
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons chipotle seasoning or chili powder
1 teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4 to 1 teaspoon sea salt
6 cups unsalted dry roasted peanuts
1. Heat butter over low heat until melted. Add olive oil, chili powder, red pepper and salt.

2. Place peanuts in a large mixing bowl. Add butter mixture, mixing well. Spread nuts on a lightly greased large baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes, stirring often.

I love spicy nuts, and chipotle is one of my favorites, love the smokiness! We love football Sundays and have a tradition of serving football snacks. Will have to try this.

I assume "chipotle seasoning" isn't ground chipotles--it's a bit too hot with straight chipotle. If that's what you have, I'd suggest 1.5 tsp ground chipotle and 1 tsp smoked paprika, which is still pretty spicy. I bet some garlic powder would be a good addition.
