These Spicy Toasted Pecans are a Guaranteed Party Hit!

Whether you’re playing games with the family or hosting people for the Big Game, it’s always a good idea to add a bunch of nuts to the mix. I don’t mean nuts like your cousin Karl, I mean those crunchy morsels that make a tasty appetizer. These pecans are especially yummy—rich and salty, with just enough heat. Prefer almonds? Use any nut in this recipe to whip up a good snack when you need a bite of something savory. Just try to keep ‘em in the bowl!
