ORANGE CHIPOTLE SPICED PECAN MIX

You will love these!  I am making up a batch for the Super Bowl.


Orange Chipotle-Spiced Pecan Mix

Prepare a batch of this smoky-sweet mix to have on hand when visitors drop by. Or pack them into handsome jars to give as gifts.
Yield: 2 1/2 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Ingredients
                1  tablespoon  grated orange rind
                1  tablespoon  fresh orange juice
                1  large egg white
                2  cups  pecan halves
                1  tablespoon  dark brown sugar
                1  teaspoon  kosher salt
                1/2  teaspoon  ground chipotle chile pepper
                Cooking spray
                1/2  cup  sweetened dried cranberries
Preparation
1. Preheat oven to 225°.
2. Combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir with a whisk. Stir in pecans. Combine sugar, salt, and pepper. Add to pecan mixture; toss well. Spread mixture in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 225° for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove from oven; cool completely. Stir in cranberries.

Oh these sound way too tempting. I have to be careful with things like this - I have been known to eat entire batches by myself!! But I will definitely note the recipe when we have some people coming over!!
