Chili Spiced Nuts

This is the perfect holiday snack to bring to your next party. I hope your guests enjoy them as much as mine continue to.


  • 1 cup of each: cashews, almonds, peanuts, pecans or 4 cups of whatever nuts you like best
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 ½ tsp. chili powder
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • dash of cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 TBSP maple syrup


  1. Preheat oven to 325℉.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour nuts onto the baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl combine oil, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, lime juice, and rosemary. Pour over nuts and mix until nuts are evenly coated with spice mixture.
  4. Roast at 325℉ for 15-20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes to avoid burning. Pour the 2 TBSP maple syrup on the nuts and stir the last 8 minutes of baking time.
  5. Remove pan to a cooling rack on the counter and allow nuts to cool, stirring occasionally, until completely cooled.
