Spicy Almonds

Crunchy and salty bowl of spicy almonds.

This Spicy Almond Recipe is perfect to snack on or throw on top of salads for a crunchy flavor burst. After making these salty and spicy almonds to top my Thai Shrimp Salad, I found myself munching on them all day long and throwing them on every salad I possibly could! They are strangely addictive and super simple to make. Just make up a big jar and keep them in your pantry so you can snack on them all week long! You likely already have everything you need in your pantry and spice rack so, what are you waiting for?!
