Hot Peanuts

Note: My Pappaw grew peanuts in his garden. Both my Mammaw and Pappaw were amazing with plants of all time. Why didn't I get that? Pappaw would grow them and Mammaw would roast or boil them. When I was little I didn't appreciate them like I do today.


1 to 2 Tablespoons dried crushed red pepper
3 Tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, pressed
1 (12oz) can cocktail peanuts
1 (12oz) can Spanish peanuts
1 Teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

Cook crushed red pepper in hot oil in a large skillet 1 minute. Stir in garlic and peanuts; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Remove from heat; sprinkle with salt and chili powder. Drain on paper towels; cool completely and serve

Grab a recipe and head on over to Lisa's for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.   You just might find What's For Supper!

I am thinking ,make a big batch. Put them in some cute bags or containers and give for Christmas gifts. I'm just sayin'.

Oh how heavenly! I love making spiced peanuts for the holidays. I'd love to make these for Halloween night, since everyone gets sick of sweets so quickly.

I'll have to make these and hide them from my husband. He's allergic, but I'm not!
