Chili Lime Salt-Roasted Almonds

Last weekend I felt like something yummy; something like popcorn with butter and salt or fresh corn tortilla chips. As a Type 2 Diabetic in partial remission I’ve worked to long to get healthy and either of those wouldn’t have been helpful for me to eat.

I grabbed some raw almonds, drizzled them with some almond oil (but any good quality nut or seed oil would have done) and tossed them all around until they were well coated and shiny and placed them on a double layer of aluminum foil.   I preheated the oven to 350°F and then topped them with a healthy amount of freshly-ground sea salt and roasted them for 15 minutes until they were slightly golden and smelled aromatic.

Tajin Seasoning® – chili, sea salt and lime

When I pulled them out of the over, I bathed them liberally with Tajin Seasoning® – a Mexican spice mixture of mild chili pepper and dehydrated lime juice (available at most supermarkets that carry international foods).

That was it!

I’ve enjoyed these so much, I thought others would too.
