The first time I made these, I was blown away. This batch of Chili & Lime Almonds will probably also be gone in a few days :). They taste like some expensive almonds from a fancy store, when in reality, they are just a simple and easy recipe that takes 10 minutes to make!
First, you prepare the cilantro and lime. Then you heat the almonds on a pan with spices. In the end, you pour the lime over the almonds, and add coriander.
– INGREDIENTS –
2 cups / 5 dl almonds
1 tbsp oil
1-2 tsp chili powder (depending on how spicy you prefer)
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp cilantro, chopped
– DIRECTIONS –
- Chop cilantro and squeeze lime. Set aside.
- Add oil on a pan. Add almonds. Stir until all almonds are covered in oil. Add salt and chilli powder. Stir on high heat until almonds are lightly toasted and fragrant (aprox. 5 minutes). They should be pretty hot!
- Place almonds in a separate bowl. Add lime juice. Stir. Add cilantro. Stir.
- Place on a baking tray to cool. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
