Chef Jon Bonnell Shares His Texas Twist on a Holiday Classic: Sweet and Spicy Pecans

Jon Bonnell's recipe for Sweet and Spice Pecans

Fort Worth, TX, December 17, 2011 --( Pecans are a holiday staple in many homes. Always willing to share, Chef Jon Bonnell gives his recipe for a holiday classic with a Texas twist that will have your guests begging for the recipe.

Serve as a snack or add zest to your salads. Either way, be warned that these pecans are addictive:

Sweet and Spicy Pecans

1 pound Texas pecan halves
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons Texas Red Dirt Rub Creole Blend
1 1/2 tablespoons chipotle powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon Texas honey

Boil pecans for 8 minutes in water, then strain. Combine the pecans with the rest of the ingredients in a mixing bowl and toss well to coat.

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit for 8 minutes.

Toss to coat one last time, then drop the pecans into a deep fryer set to 300 degrees. Fry until all bubbling subsides, roughly 2 minutes.

Remove from the fryer and drain on paper towels briefly, then scatter on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper to dry. Allow to cool completely, then store in a sealed container.

Dry pecans on wax paper to avoid sticking to each other. Be careful that they are well scattered, or they will clump together and stick like glue. Once they have cooled completely, pecans will get somewhat of a candy shell on the outside and won’t stick. Will keep for quite some time in a sealed container.
