Toasted Honey Chipotle Pecans

If you’ve never enjoyed eating pecans, you’ll change your mind after trying these toasted honey chipotle pecans. They’re divine. Toasting pecans blunts the meh, pecan-y flavor that gets old after a handful. Add honey, salt and chipotle, and you won’t be able to stop eating them.

Honey and chipotle may seem like an oxymoronic combination, but the flavors play well together. Try to find raw honey or a less refined honey to use in this recipe. I use raw honey a beekeeper friend gave me, but supermarket honey will work too. I add stevia for extra sweetness.

Chipotle powder adds a little kick to this recipe, pushing back against the sweetness of the honey and stevia. You can add more or less chipotle powder to taste, but don’t overdo it or the heat will drown out the delicate flavor of the toasted pecans.
