Roasted Chili Almonds

Chili almonds are the perfect snack.  You can make these ahead and have them after a workout, an afternoon snack, or even on a cheeseboard.  Quick to make, these chili almonds are a delicious combination of spicy and crunchy.  wp-1589987015614.jpg
A couple of years ago, on one of my many visits to my brother’s house, he made these for me and I fell in love.  They are salty, spicy, crunchy and absolutely healthy!  I love that I can make these to snack on at home or work or even put them out on a cheese or charcuterie board when we’re entertaining.
I have tried to vary the recipe but I can’t.  This one is really a no fail, don’t change it because I’ve tried and it doesn’t work type.  Also, this is not my brother’s recipe.  Actually, his wife, my adorable sister-in-law Shivani came up with this.  I’ve tried to change it around (not sure why?), I have let it roast a little longer (don’t do it – they burn!), and I’ve tried other seasonings (I love the simplicity of this one) and all my changes have been a fail so far.
So try out Shivani’s Roasted Chili Almonds and bring a little more spice to your life!


You can make a batch of these ahead of time and store in an airtight container in a cool place.  Do not store in the fridge.

2 c raw almonds
1 Tbsp Avo Oil or EVOO
2 tsp salt
2 tsp cayenne pepper

1. Preheat oven to 400ºF
2. Combine almonds and oil together and give it a good toss to make sure all the almonds are coated.
3. Line on a baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes.
4. Remove from oven and add salt and cayenne pepper while they are still hot.  Toss to coat.
