Chile and Lime Roasted Cashews Recipe
Lime juice and chile pepper give these roasted nuts a flavorful kick. Serve them at your next cookout or small get-together.
2 cups raw whole cashews
1 lime, zested and juiced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ancho chile pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle pepper
1 egg white
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set it aside. Place the cashews in a large bowl and set aside.
2. Whisk together the lime zest, salt, ancho chile, chipotle chile and egg white. Pour the wet mixture over the nuts and toss to combine, making sure they are evenly coated.
3. Transfer the nuts to the baking sheet and spread them out in an even layer. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to ensure even cooking.
4. Remove from the oven and drizzle the nuts with lime juice while they're still hot. Let cool. Once they are completely cooled, transfer the nuts to an airtight container and serve as needed.
