Brock and I found this online years ago to be used as a salad garnish – preferably in a lettuce, pear and gorgonzola salad. But the pecans are so tasty that they also make a great appetizer that no one can leave alone.
Sweet and Spicy Pecans
3 T. melted butter
1 T. EACH minced garlic AND chili powder
2 T. EACH brown sugar, white sugar AND hot sauce – I use Sriracha
1/2 t. salt
Then toss in and stir to coat;
3 c. pecans
Bake at 350 for 10 – 15 minutes, stirring at least once and allow to cool before serving or tossing in a salad.
