These roasted chili lime cashews have a little kick to them with a bright, zesty finish. Great for game-day snacking and keeping things spicy!
1 pound raw cashews
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 tablespoon lime zest
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Place raw cashews on a lined baking sheet.
Preheat oven to 400F.
Roast nuts in the oven for about 7 minutes. You will be able to smell the nuts when they are done. Be sure not to overcook!
While the nuts are roasting, mix all the other ingredients in a small cup and stir to combine.
When cashews are done, place nuts in a heat-proof bowl.
Stir in the oil mixture and toss to coat evenly.
Place coated cashews back on the baking sheet and toast for 1 more minute to dry the mixture.
Remove and serve.
Uneaten cashews (if there are any) can be stored in an air-tight container for up to 2 weeks.
