recipe: spicy sweet pecans (low carb)

Spicy Sweet Pecans (low carb)

Something more interesting than just plain nuts for those on a low carb diet, these pecan halves have been coated with a sweet-spicy flavor.  They have 2 grams of net carbs per 1/4 cup serving

2 cups raw pecan halves
2 T salted butter, melted
1 T chili powder
½ t cayenne pepper
1 t Splenda Essentials with fiber

Combine melted butter, Splenda, chili powder, and cayenne pepper
Add raw pecans and toss to coat
Bake at 250 degrees for about 20 minutes, just enough to dry coating
Cool and store in airtight container.

Makes 8 servings, ¼ C each
