Ingredients

1 1/4 teaspoons cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon mustard powder

1/2 cup sugar

Kosher salt

1 large egg white

4 cups mixed roasted salted nuts

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the cayenne, cinnamon, ginger, mustard powder, sugar and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Whisk the egg white in a large bowl until frothy. Toss in the nuts, then add the spice mixture and toss until well coated.
  3. Spread the nuts on the prepared baking sheet; bake until dry, about 45 minutes. Let cool completely on the baking sheet.
  4. Hot:
  5. These nuts are a not-too-spicy crowd pleaser. Cayenne, ginger and mustard powder give them mild heat.
  6. Hotter:
  7. Add 2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder to the spice mixture, then continue as directed.
  8. Hottest:
  9. Add 2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder to the spice mixture, then continue as directed. While the nuts are baking, fry 4 thinly sliced serrano chile peppers in 350 degrees F canola oil until crisp, about 30 seconds. Drain on paper towels, season with salt and toss with the nuts.
