Chipotle-Lime Mixed Nuts


With December just around the corner and the celebration of the holiday season my mind is racing with recipes to make and share this year. Like every morning I was reading a bunch of recipes when I came across this one from Simply Recipes! I was thinking these spiced nuts would make a great holiday gift. Packaged in festive containers with the recipe attached will be a very good thing!!

Enjoy and Happy cooking~

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, etc.)
  • 3 teaspoons salt
  • Grated zest of 2 limes
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons chipotle powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice

 

 

Directions:

1 Preheat oven to 350°F.

2 “Muddle” the grated lime zest with the salt in a large bowl by mashing it around with the back of a wooden spoon. The salt and zest should intermingle into a paste. Add the brown sugar and chipotle powder and mix well.

3 Whisk in the egg whites. Add the nuts and mix to combine, until all of the nuts are well coated.

4 Place the nuts in a layer on a cookie sheet that has been lined with either parchment paper or Silpat. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until light golden brown. Remove from oven, sprinkle lime juice over all the nuts and return to the oven for 2 minutes. Allow to cool before eating.
