Spiced Pecans

Iain Bagwell; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 16 servings (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Ancho chiles are dried smoked poblano peppers. Look for ancho chile powder on the spice aisle of most supermarkets or at Latin groceries. Regular chili powder includes ground cumin, dried oregano, and other ingredients, so the two are not interchangeable.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ancho chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups pecan halves
