How to Make These BBQ Almonds
These homemade barbecue almonds are super easy to make. It only requires three steps:
Step 1. Make the barbecue mix. In a clean bowl/container, mix all the spices together – chili, smoked paprika, garlic, onion, cayenne, Chipotle pepper powder, and the salt.
Step 2. Coat the almonds with olive oil and then with the spice mix. In a separate bowl, coat the almonds evenly with olive oil and then with the spice mix.
Step 3. Roast it. Roast the almonds at 350F for 7-10 minutes or until the almonds are golden brown (not burnt). Keep an eye on them as they could easily get burnt.
