We had some friends over for the super bowl a few weeks ago and served an assortment of “game time” recipes. These Buffalo Spiced Nuts were a huge hit.

They’re spicy, but not so spicy that your taste buds can’t relax a little and enjoy the flavor. Feel free to use whatever mix of nuts you’d like. You can even stick to one kind if you don’t like to mix your nuts. I got crazy with mine, but if I made it again I would probably make a pistachio only version.

  • Sounds awesome, definitely going to try this one…. probably cashews for starters or cashew and pistachio mix, hmm ?

  • That sounds great, Wayne! I think I’m going to make up another batch of these soon, heavy on the pistachios. 😉
