    Recipe Introduction

    These were so good. I thought they would be really hot and strong flavored (and that only Mr. Kim would like them), but they were really tasty. I would recommend cooking them on a pan lined with Release foil and I would add half again as much lime zest.

    List of Ingredients

    2 c. pecan halves
    2 c. whole almonds
    1 c. sugar, divided
    4 c. warm water
    c. butter, melted
    2 T. chili powder
    2 t. grated lime zest
    t. salt
    t. cumin
    1/8 t. ground red pepper


    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Place nuts in a large bowl; stir in 1 c. sugar and 4 c. warm water. Let stand 10 minutes. Drain well; return to bowl. Pour butter over nuts, stirring to coat.

    Stir together remaining c. sugar, chili powder, and next 4 ingredients; pour over nut mixture, tossing to coat. Spread in a single layer on a 15x10 inch jellyroll pan.

    Bake for 30 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Arrange in a single layer on wax paper, and let cool. Store in an airtight container.

    Makes 4 cups.
