Hot 'n Spicy Peanuts

Kelly Williams


I remember when I was a little girl, sitting on my dad's lap, eating salted peanuts in the shell and we had so much fun cracking them open for hours on end! Maybe my love for peanuts comes from the memories of my dad and the short time I got to spend with him. Or maybe we both just share the same tastes. At any rate, oh boy, I do love peanuts! This is a spicy one, and oh so good warm! Hope you enjoy! (Photo from bing images)

  • 1 tsp.
    butter-flavor crisco or vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp.
  • 2 cups
    unsalted peanuts
  • 2 tsp.
    chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp.
    cayenne powder
  • 1/2 tsp.
    garlic salt, or more to taste

How to Make Hot 'n Spicy Peanuts


  1. In a skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat. Stir in the peanuts, chili powder, and cayenne. Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until peanuts are warm. Let drain well on paper towels. (You don't want them to be greasy. *I line a colander with 2 sheets paper towel.) Sprinkle garlic salt over peanuts and toss to combine. Serve warm. Cool completely before storing if not being eaten at this time. May be stored in a tightly covered container at room temperature for several days. But these don't ever make it to storage! ;)
