Do you always wonder what you are going to give those “hard to give to” people? Here is a quick last minute gift or a great hostess gift. You can either reuse a container you have – I will explain how to decoupage a container later – or buy a cute holiday container at the dollar store.
1 cup almonds
1 ½ teaspoons canola oil
½ teaspoon paprika
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon garlic salt
Dash fresh ground pepper
1. Roast almonds in oil, stirring frequently in a skillet over medium low heat until slightly browned and crispy. You will be able to hear the nuts hissing.
2. Toss nuts with spices until evenly coated.
3. Spread out on aluminum foil to cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
