We all know Diane Sawyer is a fan of spicy things. Enter Emeril with a recipe for spicy nuts.
Preheat oven to 250° F.
In a medium size mixing bowl, whip egg white until stiff peaks form.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the butter, cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and allspice. Mix well so the spices are evenly distributed.
Using a rubber spatula, mix the nuts with the egg white until the nuts are well coated. Add half of the spice mixture to the nuts, stir to coat. Add the remaining half of the spice mixture and stir well with the rubber spatula, wiping down the sides of the bowl.
Spread the nuts in one even layer on a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Allow to cool completely and then store in an airtight container.
Yield: 4 cups
