A great trick in the kitchen is to start with an already made spice blend, like chili powder, and then adding other spices to it to make it uniquely your own. Here we’ve added some warm allspice and a bit of cayenne pepper to chili powder to give these nuts a bit more kick. Instead of allspice, you could also use cinnamon or nutmeg. Adjust the cayenne pepper to your own heat preference.
