Chili Nuts Recipe


1 piece of egg white; beaten lightly
1-1/2 cups of cashews (unsalted)
2 teaspoons of coarse salt (kosher)
1 teaspoon of sugar (refined)
1 teaspoon of pepper flakes (red); crushed
1/2 teaspoon of cumin (ground)
1/2 teaspoon of oregano leaf; crumbled
1/4 teaspoon of hot pepper (red, ground)


Preheat the oven, 300 deg Fahrenheit. Grease a jellyroll pan. Combine egg white and cashews; gently toss them. Combine sugar, salt, (pepper) flakes, oregano, ground pepper, and cumin; mix well and add onto the nuts then toss.

Spread the nuts onto the greased pan. Place inside the oven and bake (300 degrees F) for twenty-five mins, stirring twice or thrice to make sure the nuts won’t stick. Let the nuts cool before storing into one airtight jar or container.

(For microwave)

Prepare the nuts as stated above. Spread on the base of a microwave-safe dish. Place inside the microwave and cook at high power for seven mins, uncovered. Stir halfway through cooking and after cooking.
