Since it’s another big football weekend ahead, and I am entertaining for the Alabama/LSU game, I thought I would try a new peanut snack recipe. I’m hooked on chipotle seasoning, and this simple Chipotle Spiced Peanuts is a winning recipe. It also makes a great holiday food gift idea, and it’s under 30 minutes to prepare. Be sure to start with dry, unsalted peanuts. Have a great weekend everyone! Alison
