(From Eating Well Magazine) A medley of warm spices tempered with a touch of brown sugar is a great match for rich, nutritious pecans. They make a perfect nibble with a drink before dinner or afterward with a cup of espresso.
  • 1 1/2 tbsps chili powder
  • 1 1/2 tsps ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 1/2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (juice from one lemon)
  • 2 tbsps lemon zest (from one washed lemon)
  • 1 tsp curry powder

Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine chili powder, cumin, coriander, paprika, brown sugar and garlic powder in a small bowl. Toss pecans and Worcestershire sauce in a large bowl. Sprinkle the spice mixture over the pecans, tossing to coat. Spread the spiced nuts on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake the pecans, tossing every 8 to 10 minutes, until lightly browned and very fragrant, about 35 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; sprinkle with salt and toss well. Let cool.

Tip: Refrigerate chili pecans in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
