No Super Bowl party should be without a large bowl of peanuts. They are perfect for munching on. I love them in many varieties: roasted in the shell, roasted with the skin on, dry roasted, honey roasted and so on. The peanuts that I made for Day 3 of the 12 Days of Super Bowl Snacks are spiced with a chili lime seasoning. The fresh lime juice is subtle but present and the chili seasoning has a depth of spice that has just a bit of heat.

I store the peanuts in a mason jar. They stay fresh in there for a long time!
Chili Lime Spiced Peanuts
- 3 cups raw peanuts
- 2 limes , juices (approx. 1/4 cup)
- 2 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1/2 tsp cayenne (or more if you want it hot!)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp honey
- Mix together the lime juice, spices, oil and honey. Pour over the peanuts and toss until they are all evenly coated.
- Spread the peanuts across a baking sheet and bake in a 350F oven for 15-20 minutes. Remove when they are slightly underdone. Do not over bake the peanuts as they will continue to cook once removed from the oven.
