I love peanuts (or any nuts, really) and this is an easy recipe to change them up a bit. They are easy to make and would be great for a party or for gift giving. Just make sure that you drain them well or they will be greasy. They are quite spicy so watch out!
Hot and Spicy Peanuts
2 teaspoons vegetable oil
2 cups unsalted peanuts
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt, use more if you like
In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Stir in the peanuts, chili powder, and red pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until peanuts are warm. Drain well on paper towels. Sprinkle garlic salt over peanuts and toss to combine. Cool completely.
May be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature.
Makes 2 cups.
