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!

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
