Chipotle Spice Blend:

1 tablespoon sugar

2 to 3 teaspoons chipotle powder

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic

Kosher salt


Vegetable or canola oil, for the baking sheet

1 large egg white

1 cup unsalted raw almonds

1 cup unsalted raw peanuts

1 cup unsalted raw pecans

1 cup potato chips


  1. Mix together the sugar, chipotle powder, coriander, cumin, lime zest, granulated garlic and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a small bowl and set aside.

For the nuts: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil a rimmed baking sheet with the oil.
  2. Put the egg white in a large bowl and whisk until frothy. Add the nuts and potato chips and toss to coat in the egg white. Add the spice blend and toss to coat.
