Oaxacan Nuts

spicy mixed nuts


We could call these hot nuts, or spicy nuts, but we might get a few raised eyebrows, right? 😉 They are named for a region and style of cooking.


2 tablespoons Olive oil

2 teaspoons Garlic salt

2 pounds Canned mixed nuts

1 package Chili seasoning mix (5/8-oz)

2 teaspoons Extra-hot chili powder (I would call this optional…)


Heat oil with garlic salt.

Add nuts, reduce heat and toss, using 2 spoons, until nuts are well coated.

Transfer to large bowl.

Blend chili seasoning and chili powder and add to nuts. Toss mixture until nuts are well coated.

Store in airtight container and refrigerate for at least 2 days to blend flavors.

Nuts may be frozen. If frozen, reheat at 350F 5 minutes.
