I'm getting ready for Thanksgiving with friends at their home tomorrow, and I decided to start some of my dishes early.  I made two types of nuts as part of our appetizers, one sweet and one savory, but both can also be packed up as gifts for friends and neighbors.  Since I'm a baby who doesn't like things very hot, these are mild but you can easily kick up the heat by adding some cayenne pepper.  Here's a link to the companion Vanilla Spiced Nut Mix.



Toasted Chili Almonds


Ingredients
2 T margarine
1 3/4 T Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp liquid smoke
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper
dash or cayenne pepper (optional)
2 3/4 cups almonds (14 oz.)


Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  

Melt the margarine in a large microwave safe bowl.  

Whisk in the spices, liquid smoke & Worcestershire sauce.  Mix in the nuts and stir very well to evenly coat.

Spread the nuts on a sheet pan, and bake for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Spread the hot nuts out on a piece of parchment paper to cool, then store in an airtight container.

Uhh, yum!  I have purchased ones that were disgusting, so I am very interested in trying a homemade version!  I bet it's 10,000x better.

Sure!  Just up the Worcestershire sauce to 2 Tablespoons.  The original recipe I adapted mine from didn't call for the smoke, just the Worcestershire.  I wanted the almonds to have a hint of smoke with the chili powder, but didn't want to ruin the ration of wet ingredients, so that's where I scaled back from the original recipe I adapted. 

Also good to note, you may want to sprinkle a bit of salt or kosher salt onto yours just before baking.  My husband doesn't like things too salty, so I scaled back a bit.  Smiley

Ooh, yummy! My mister would find these delish. I haven't got any liquid smoke but I do have smoked salt and smoked paprika that I could add. I may try with coconut oil (the flavourless kind) since we don't have marg and I think butter might burn. We'll see how it goes Smiley.
