Tips For Making The Best Spicy Nuts

  • Feel free to use only one type of nut if you want. Personally, I like to use at least 3 different types for a great texture and flavor.
  • Add some red pepper chili flakes to create a hot and spicy nuts recipe.
  • Make sure you arrange them in a single layer to cook evenly in the oven.
  • Don’t overbake your nuts because they will burn and will become bitter.
  • Let the nuts cool completely before storing them in an airtight container.
