Nuts are in the consume daily section of the Med Pyramid. Yet I don't eat them very often. This sounds like a great recipe to help me change this.

Use this yummy recipe for spiced pecans as a snack or a salad topping. Keep in mind to only eat a handful at a time because the nuts, although very healthy, are high in calories.

Recipe courtesy Steve Johnson, from The Oldways Table

Spiced Pecans
*serves 16*

Ingredients
2 tablespoons light or dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 cups pecans, or any other nuts

Instructions
1.Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2.In a mixing bowl, blend the brown sugar, salt, paprika, chili powder, and red pepper. Pour in the melted butter and stir to mix.
3.Add the nuts and toss to coat them evenly.
4.Spread the seasoned nuts out on a baking sheet, and roast them for 15 minutes or so.
5.Your nose will tell you when they are ready! Serve immediately, or let cool and store in a jar for later.
