Fast and Easy Recipe For Holiday Smoky and Spicy Almonds

Smoky, Spicy, and Salty, These Nuts Are Like a Flavor Bomb in Your Mouth

There are spiced nuts, and then there are SPICED nuts. While other recipes might only bring a mild dose of heat, these almonds are far from meek. Savory, smoky, spicy, and salty, they prove addictive in a similar way to Doritos and other intensely flavored snacks.

Like all spiced nuts, they're a great low-effort appetizer option for any parties you may be hosting; alternatively, they make for a nice edible gift.

Smoky and Spicy Almonds

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon water
  2. 1 large egg white
  3. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  4. 1/2 tablespoon garlic salt
  5. 1/2 tablespoon bacon salt or 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  6. 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  7. 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  8. 2 dashes hot sauce
  9. 1/4 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
  10. 3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  11. 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  12. 1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
  13. 1 pound raw almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a half sheet pan with a silpat or parchment.
  2. In a large bowl, combine water and egg white and whisk until foamy. Add the sugar, garlic salt, bacon salt (or kosher salt), paprika, cumin, hot sauce, worcestershire, cayenne, ancho chili powder, and white pepper. Whisk to combine. Add almonds; toss to coat evenly.
  3. Spread almonds in a single layer on the prepped half sheet pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes; stir almond mixture and reduce oven temperature to 275°F. Bake another 40 minutes, or until the nuts are dry to the touch. Cool completely before transferring to a container.
