Sweet and Spicy Pecans

These Sweet and Spicy Pecans are ideal for snacking and make a great appetizer. We just love the flavor and the spice in the coating for these pecans. Sweet and Spicy Pecans make a great gift that my friends really enjoy. These pecans are very crispy and leave that spice hot flavor at the back of your mouth that keeps you coming back for more. When you decide to make a batch of these pecan be sure and double it, one will not be enough.
