I absolutely love barbecue potato chips.  I mean, like could totally lick the inside of the chip bag kind of love.  Come to think of it, I can't be left alone with a bag of barbecue flavored chips.  It's detrimental ... to both me and the chips.

Sure, I love other flavors of chips, too.  But nothing quite compares to that spicy-sweet taste of barbecue chips.

If you're a lover of all things barbecue like me, I encourage you to give these mixed nuts a try.  They're super easy to make, and taste just amazing.

Well, I've now discovered with these Barbecue Roasted Mixed Nuts, you can get that same great spicy-sweet barbecue flavor without the potato chip guilt.  Mmmmmmm, potato chips step aside ... I've got a new barbecue love.

Because let me tell you, these Barbecue Roasted Mixed Nuts ROCK.

If you're a lover of all things barbecue like me, I encourage you to give these mixed nuts a try.  They're super easy to make, and taste just amazing.

Barbecue Roasted Mixed Nuts Spice Mix Image

To make them, just mix up a simple spice mix of paprika, ground cumin, salt, garlic powder, dry mustard, ground ginger, and sugar.

Ground cumin brings the spicy element to the barbecue party, while a mix of brown and granulated sugar brings the sweetness.  The cumin combined with paprika brings that little bit of smokiness we love so much.

Ground cumin brings the spicy element to the barbecue party, while a mix of brown and granulated sugar brings the sweetness.

Once the spices are mixed, toss mixed nuts in a bowl with some egg whites.  Then sprinkle on the prepared barbecue spices.

The egg whites act like "glue" to make the spiced yumminess stick to the nuts.

Give everything a good stir to get all the nuts coated in the barbecue spices.

Then spread the nuts out in a single layer on a baking sheet.

I like to line my baking sheet with parchment or aluminum foil and very lightly spray it with non-stick cooking spray to make for super easy clean-up.

Pop the baking sheet in the oven and bake the nuts for about 25 minutes.

The egg whites will cook, adhering the barbecue spice mixture really nicely to the mixed nuts.

  7. The nuts look delicious!

    Is there a substitute of some sorts for the egg white?
    I'd love to serve these to guests but some of my friends are vegan...

    Thank you!

  8. Food and Wine: I don't use eggs either and I think some flax goo (flaxseed mixed with water and let sit for 5-10 minutes until gooey) should do the trick.
