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.
