Sweet & Spicy Mixed Nuts

Here's an easy way to take a can of mixed nuts to the next level. They're spicy and sweet and crunchy. They look great. And they're super easy to make.

Seriously. We're talking under five minutes hands-on time and twenty in the oven.

Sweet & Spicy Mixed Nuts
serves 12 (or one.)


  • 11.5 oz can mixed nuts
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp ground cayenne pepper
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

How it's done:

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.

Melt your butter. Add cumin and cayenne pepper. Blend well.

Toss the nuts in the butter and spices to coat evenly.

Combine sugar and salt. Pour over nuts and toss well to coat evenly again.

Spread them out on a baking sheet. Bake ten minutes, move the nuts around a bit, and bake another ten minutes, till lightly browned.
