How to Make Chili-Roasted Peanuts with Dried Cherries

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 to 325°F. Melt the butter in a small saucepan; remove from heat. Add the raw peanuts and toss to coat evenly with the melted butter.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, cumin, white pepper, salt, oregano, and cayenne; set aside.
  3. Spread the peanuts in a single layer on a large sheet pan and lightly toast in the oven for about 10 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
  4. Transfer the peanuts into a large bowl and coat with the dry ingredients. Mix in the cherries until uniformly blended.
  5. Cool completely, then cover and store at room temperature (lasts up to 2 weeks).

    * Can substitute raisins or dried cranberries in place of the dried cherries, if desired.
