Toasting nuts briefly in the oven makes them crispy but tossing them with falafel mix first makes them even crunchier. You can substitute walnuts in place of the pecans here.

2 cups pecan halves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup falafel mix
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, toss the pecans with the melted butter until evenly coated. In a small bowl, combine the falafel mix with the sugar and cayenne. Pour the spice mix over the pecans and toss to coat. Spread the spiced nuts on a lightly greased baking sheet and toast for about 9 minutes, stirring once or twice, until golden. Let cool.
The pecans can be stored at room temperature for up to 1 week.
Add the cayenne pepper to the spice mixture a tiny pinch at a time. Dip a buttered pecan in the mixture after each pinch and taste, then proceed with the recipe when you've reached your preferred level of heat.
