These spicy cashews are not for those with a sensitive palate. With ghost pepper salt and habanero chili powder, they live up to their name. You’ve been warned!

  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed Aleppo peppers
  • 1/4 teaspoon ghost pepper salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon habanero chili powder
Step By Step Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking tray with parchment.
  2. Add cashews to a resealable plastic bag; drizzle cashews with maple syrup. Stir taco seasoning, Aleppo chili peppers, ghost pepper salt, and habanero chili powder together in a small bowl.
  3. Sprinkle seasoning onto cashews, reseal the bag, and shake to distribute seasoning evenly. Spread cashews in a single layer on the prepared baking tray.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Stir or shake the tray every 5 minutes to toast evenly. Allow to cool completely, about 15 minutes. Store in an airtight jar.
