You can always take coarse salt in a plastic bag and shake the nuts vigorously in it, rubbing with your hands. About half of the flavorings will come off which will make the nuts far more palatable. Use a sieve to separate the nuts and salt. Brush with a pastry brush to remove any additional salt. If you mix them 1:1 with unsalted/unflavored almonds, you'll also be able to eat them more easily.

As for recipes, try as a crunched up topping for salads in small amounts. Or add to garlic and saute (small nut crumbles) for a simple stir fry of green beans or asparagus. You can grind them in a food processor to a "flour" and use them on fish, or chicken as a dredge before baking.

I'd say to find a plain almond recipe with savory ingredients and use it that way. Crusted chicken sounds good.

It also sounds like it would go well in a peanut-butter stew, just grind up a big handful at a time to compliment.

I love almonds, especially the flavoured ones from Blue Diamond. I bought the smokehouse flavour, and found I don't really like them on their own. I tried looking around for recipes, but all the recipes I can find are either for plain almonds or how to make smokehouse almonds. I don't just want to throw them away, so I figured you all might be able to give me some ideas. What could I put them with so they taste better? I'm thinking I'd really like encrusted chicken or something, so what would make a good coating? Or any other ideas people might have are welcome!

Thank you!
