Chipotle Spiced Almonds

Healthy Flavorful Snacking at It’s BEST! Every couple of weeks my husband makes a big batch of chipotle-roasted almonds. (I buy the raw almonds in the 3lb. bag). We snack on these tasty almonds throughout the course of a few weeks.

I actually think it’s better to make them in smaller batches, as they are best when they first come out of the oven. Warning: you will not be able to resist these smoked, spiced almonds when they first come out of the oven.
