Chipotle Spiced Pecans

Chipotle Spiced Pecans

Homemade spiced nuts are holiday treat welcomed by everyone. I make these every year and place them on my dining room table for guests to enjoy during holiday parties, pot lucks and get-togethers. The spicy chipotle twist usually surprises their taste buds but come back to devour some more every single time. Make a batch for your holiday gatherings and I guarantee these tasty nuts will disappear immediately from the serving bowl.
