Her Southern Charm's Chipotle Lime nuts
chipotle chile powder
*if you don't have Tajin, you can use regular chili powder
*add if you like a bit more spicy!
Preheat oven to 350°.
Using a zester, finely zest the limes in a large bowl. Squeeze the juice of the limes saving one half of one lime for later use.
Add the chiptole powder, brown sugar, and salt to the bowl of lime juice and zest. Mix and muddle all these ingredients well.
Add all the nuts to the bowl and mix with the paste. Mix well, making sure they nuts are coated evenly. Set aside.
Whisk the egg whites in a small bown and add to the nuts once again mixing well.
Lay on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Spread so the nuts are only on one layer.
Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle with the remaining half of lime juice. Mix again, separating nuts, and return to oven baking again for 5-7 minutes.
Remove and mix one last time. Bake again for five minutes more.
Remove from oven and let cool down before storing and serving. Store in an airtight container.
If you like you food a bit spicier, you can add more cayenne or chili powder. I'm a wuss and I can handle the heat of these as the recipe stands.
