Need a Unique Gift? Taco-Flavored Roasted Pecans to the Rescue

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.

Do it!
