Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Pecans

Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Pecans

My friend brought my husband and I a box of these tasty Chipotle and Rosemary Roasted Pecans and we ate the whole box! She shared with me this recipe which used mixed nuts instead of just pecans. These quick and easy pecans are great to package and give as holiday gifts.

You will need:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease sheet pan generously with vegetable oil. Combine the pecans, 1 tablespoons of vegetable oil, the maple syrup, brown sugar, orange juice and chipotle powder on the sheet pan. Toss to coat the nuts evenly. Add 1 tablespoon of the rosemary and 1 teaspoon of salt and toss again. If using dried rosemary, I find it easier to mix the rosemary and salt in an empty spice container and sprinkle from there. The second time I made these, I lined my sheet pan with a non-stick silicone baking mat {affiliate link } and it saved me the headache of scrubbing the sheet pan! Follow the directions the same otherwise.

Spread the pecans evenly on pan. Roast the pecans for 25 minutes, stirring twice with a large metal spatula, until the pecans are glazed and golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with 1 more teaspoon of salt and the remaining 1 tablespoon of rosemary.

Toss well and set aside at room temperature, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking as they cool. Taste for seasoning. Serve warm or cool completely and store in airtight containers at room temperature.
