I have a confession to make, y’all.
I’m completely obsessed with these Honey Chipotle Spiced almonds. I have serious love for honey-chipotle anything, and when added to these almonds…
oh. my. word.
I made several variations of these, playing with the heat level, the honey, the spices, and the version that I’m sharing with y’all today is hands down my favorite.
I think I need to make nut deliveries, or have people come over because I can’t quit snacking on these.
They’re so good!
After all, there’s no way that you can go wrong with honey and chipotles and kosher salt.
Can I get an Amen?
After watching an entire batch of my bourbon glazed candied pecans disappear at Nathan’s birthday this past Saturday, I was determined to come up with another easy and delicious roasted nut recipe. Where the bourbon glazed pecans are sweet and crunchy – these Honey Chipotle Spiced Almonds are smoky and slightly spicy with just a hint of sweet.
My kids are picky about spices and trying new things. They both love raw almonds and roasted, salted almonds, and the bourbon glazed candied pecans got thumbs up from them, too. Getting them to try these was a bit tricky, but with a little reverse psychology, both kids were on board. They like the milder 1st batch that had 1/2 the amount of chipotle powder, while Nathan and I both prefer this recipe because it has a bit more heat.
It’s really a terrible thing to have to munch on different variations of honey chipotle glazed almonds </sarcasm>
These almonds can easily be made spicier, or sweeter, or even saltier – it’s totally up to you!
Do you have a spiced nut recipe that you are totally obsessed with? What’s your favorite flavor combination?
