Chipotle Caramel Glazed Nuts

Some of you have your brackets filled out and are ready for game time. And some of you just want to enjoy the snacks that go along with a month of basketball playoffs...(I'm in that category!). Regardless if you are rooting on your favorite team or want a seriously Can't. Stop. Eating. snack to have on hand for when guests come over, you need to try these chipotle caramel glazed nuts. I have made them mixed, as shown here, and with just pecans to top salads with. Either way, you can't go wrong. I make up a big batch at time and store the extras in my freezer. Now I am never without something to offer unexpected company, or something to take to a last minute party! Chipotle Caramel Glazed Nuts for the score!!
