I’m pretty sure I mentioned to the class that I received a very generous gift of assorted Seasonings and Rubs from the Ole’ Miner at Miners Mix.
The spiciest mix of the lot is this Pepperhead’s Hot-Banero; can you see that this one has Ghost Peppers in it? My husband’s good buddy, Mister Dear Friend, is a true Pepperhead and LOVES everything muy caliente! So I was sitting here tried to think of what else I could use this warm spice with/on … DING! 💡 Spiced Nuts!
So I gathered my ingredients and got to work.
Miners Mix Hot-Banero Spiced Cashews
1 tsp. Miners Mix Pepperhead’s Hot-banero Seasoning
½ Tbsp. pure Maple Syrup
1/8 tsp. Sea Salt
1 C. raw-unsalted and shelled Cashews
Pre-heat our oven to 325⁰.
In a medium sized bowl, combine until smooth, the first 3 ingredients.
Add the nuts and mix until all the nuts are evenly coated with the spice mixture.
Line a rimmed baking sheet with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.
Spread the nuts in a single layer on the pan and bake for about 15-20, or until the nuts are fragrant.
Cool and serve or package in a zip bag for later munchies.
HEH! Christmas is coming, would this make a great gift for any Pepperhead?
