Chili Pecans

From EatingWell:  Fall 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

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.

About 2 cups | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 275°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
