Roasted Chipotle Almonds

  • 2 cups almonds, whole
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp Art of Chipotle Smokey Red Sensation Sauce or Art of Chipotle Fresh Cream Indulgence Sauce

Place all ingredients in a zippered plastic bag, massage to mix well; pour onto cookie sheet with sides.

Bake, stirring once during cooking time, until you can smell the toasted nuts, about 20 minutes.

Turn oven off but do not remove pan until oven cools off.  The nuts should feel dry to the touch.  Watch carefully, nuts can burn quickly.
