Nueces Y Pepitas Picantes (Spicy Nuts and Seeds)

“A Mexican treat from Savoring Appetizers and a good compliment to Mexican beer. Recipe calls for árbol chili but recipe editor would not recognize it, use cayenne if you can't find the other.”

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 275°.
  2. In a frying pan over medium-low heat, warm the oil. Add the garlic cloves and sauté until they begin to turn tan, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the nuts and seeds, coating them well with the oil. Add 1 teaspoon salt and the ground chile, just a pinch at a time, until the taste just tingles the tongue.
  3. Spread the nuts and seeds evenly on a baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a bowl, sprinkle with more salt, if needed. Serve warm or at room temperature.
