Spicy Cajun Pecans

Pecans aren't just for sweet pralines - try this savory, spicy recipe for a Cajun-inspired treat!

1 lb pecan halves
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 tsp Louisiana hot sauce (I recommend Pain Is Good #218 Louisiana Hot Sauce, or Mean Devil Woman Hot Sauce for serious heat)
2 Tbs Worcestershire sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter or margarine in a small saucepan over medium heat, then stir in the hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce until thoroughly combined. Place the pecans in a large bowl, drizzle with the butter-sauce mixture and toss to coat the pecans evenly. Spread the pecans in a shallow baking dish and bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes until roasted, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven, let cool, and then serve or store in an airtight container.

Zestfully yours,

P.S.: If you enjoy hot & spicy nuts, check out the smoked habanero peanuts called Firehouse Nuts at the Carolina Sauce Company. They also have Chipotle Seasoned Peanuts and Wasabi Peanuts, too!
