Savory Roasted Pecans

Y’all know how much we like our ‘Picy Pretzels, right? They’re delicious any time of the year, but I love them most in front of a roaring fire with an adult drank.

To add a bit of nutrition to our by-the-fire snacks, I tinkered with a nut recipe and came up with Savory Roasted Pecans. Yum. Mix these in a bowl with the spicy pretzels and BAM! you have a party!

Savory Roasted Pecans

Savory Roasted Pecans


  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon taco mix
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pound pecan halves


  1. Preheat over to 300°.
  2. Melt butter and add all ingredients, except pecan halves. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Add pecans and stir to coat.
  4. Pour nuts onto a jellyroll pan, making sure they are spread out in a single layer.
  5. Bake 30 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
  6. Cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Simple and delish! A win-win combo. As an added bonus, these savory pecans make delightful hostess gifts, Christmas gifts, birthday gifts…ah, hell, anything/anytime gifts!

Happy roasting, y’all!
