    Chili Roasted Pecans with Dried Cherries

    Hi Sandra - here is the nut recipe as pictured below. It's delicious, I hope you enjoy (in moderation, of course!)


    Adapted from Better Homes and Gardens "Appetizers"

    This is a sweet-savory nut recipe sure to satisfy any hunger craving. It can be made in advance and kept in an airtight container at room temperature until time to serve.

    Makes about 2 1/2 cups nuts.

    Ingredients:
    1 tablespoon cooking oil
    1/4 teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce
    2 cups pecan halves
    1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    3/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
    3/4 cup dried cherries

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine cooking oil and hot pepper sauce. Add pecans; toss to coat evenly. Set aside.

    In a small bowl, combine chili powder, black pepper, salt, cumin and oregano. Add to pecans; toss well to coat.

    Arrange pecans in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until toasted, stirring every 5 minutes. Keep a watchful eye as they can burn quickly. Remove from oven and stir in dried cherries. Serve warm or at room temperature.

    One ounce of dry roasted pecans contains 187 calories, 2 grams of protein, 18 grams fat (1 saturated), 6 grams carbohydrate and 2 grams of dietary fiber. Nuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the healthy fats.

    Nutty Perspective


    This is a picture from our Thanksgiving appetizer table - it clearly demonstrates the smallness of an "appropriate" 1-ounce serving of Chili-Toasted Pecans with Dried Cranberries from a recent Recipe of the Week. Notice the 1-ounce serving size. Even with WLS it is easy to over-eat the appropriate 1-ounce portion.

    By the way, one ounce of dry roasted pecans contains 187 calories, 2 grams of protein, 18 grams fat (1 saturated), 6 grams carbohydrate and 2 grams dietary fiber. nuts are rich in monounsaturated fats, the healthy fats. However, a little goes a long way!

    It's all about portion control! Make a visual image and honor your body with healthy foods in appropriate portion!
