Look at those beauties!
Savory Roasted Pecans
1/3 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon taco mix (more, if you’re feeling like it needs more taco!)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp salt
1 pound pecan halves
Preheat over to 300°.
Melt butter and add all ingredients, except pecan halves. Mix thoroughly.
Add pecans and stir to coat.
Pour nuts onto a jellyroll pan, making sure they are spread out in a single layer.
Bake 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
Garry and I love these with adult drinks by a roaring fire while we discuss the events of the day…or the latest antics of Sweet E!
Delicious and nutritious, with a hint of taco – basically, the perfect snack.
Get to making and eating and giving.
