Southern Living’s Spicy Pistachios

IMG_4630

Since Super Bowl Sunday is coming up, I thought I’d put this recipe up to share with you since it would be a perfect one to serve your friends while watching the game and drinking a nice cold beverage.  I love pistachios, even more so with the shell still on.  I don’t mind the work.  These pistachios have such a nice kick to them from the chipotle, but with a hint of of cinnamon lingering in the background.  It’s really a great flavor combination.  They are a little different from your traditional bowl of mixed nuts and are great to have around when you’re feeling snacky.

Try ‘em, you’ll like ‘em.

    Pistachios are usually the one nut I leave out of mixes or shy away from when making spicy/sweet batches of a single nut because all that shelling … makes my fingers hurt just thinking about it. Obviously you can buy shelled pistachios, but I don’t like those as much for some reason. Never would’ve thought to mix them up with the shell still on. It’s genius! Plus, I think shelling the pistachios as you go along is half of the fun of snacking. Helps me keep track of how many I’ve eaten!

    Cheers and thanks for sharing,

    What a great idea! Instead of the usual peanuts or spiced pecans, a spiced pistachio. Why didn’t I think of that??

    Hmmm, and here I was, wondering what to do with that bag of pistachios that I meant to make cookies with but never got around to… ;-)

    Looks awesome!

    That’s an interesting way to use pistachios instead of eating it as it is. How creative!

    I think I’ve had every other kind of spiced nut imaginable, EXCEPT pistachios. And I love pistachios. These sound wonderful, especially with that Worcestershire sauce!
