Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts

Are you crazy for nuts? Are you crazy for Chipotle? If your answer is yes, then I have a recipe you MUST try. This recipe is AWESOME! It's sure to be a crowd pleaser at your next holiday party, tailgating, or dinner party. Or, even better, it would make a great personalized gift.

If you used Chipotle Chili Powder before, you know it comes with heat! I opted to use less than the original recipe called for and added a bit more chili powder instead.

Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts

Recipe adapted from: 

  • 1/3 cup raw sugar cane (fine)
  • 1 tsp chipotle chili cowder
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbps no salt added butter
  • 2 Tbps honey
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 pound {unsalted} raw skinless peanuts
1) Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Stir together sugar, chipotle powder, chili powder,and garlic powder in a small bowl and set aside.
2) Stir together the butter, honey, and salt in a sauce pan over low/med heat until butter has melted and it begins to bubble. Stir in peanuts and mix well until all peanuts are well coated. Then pour them into a 9 x 13 baking dish. 
3)  Bake in preheated oven until peanuts are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Stir the mixture 2-3 times while baking to ensure even cooking. 
4) Once out of the oven, sprinkle the peanuts with the spice mixture and stir until coated evenly. Allow the peanuts to cool to room temperature, tossing them a few times so they won't stick together.

NOTE: I found my Chipotle Chili Powder at Kroger.
