As people prepare for Super Bowl parties, most will make sure they have chips and dip on hand for the big event. But why be like everyone else? Why not try something different this year? When I know there's going to be nibbling going on -- and isn't that every bit a part of Super Bowl Sunday as watching the cool commercials that get unveiled? -- I reach for my tried and true recipes featuring nuts.
This month, I'm offering you two of my favorites. The first is a spicy mix that features a variety of nuts and a south Indian theme. Anyone who enjoys a good curry, or any other spicy food for that matter, will be enjoying these by the handful. If you're planning a large get together, I recommend adding a bit more salt and some mini pretzels to stretch the snack mix a bit.
4 c. nuts - I like to use a wide variety (like pecans, walnuts, almonds and pistachios)
Preheat the oven to 275° F.
Combine the yogurt, butter, and spices in a large bowl. Add the nuts, toss in the mix until the nuts are well coated. Spread them in a large, shallow baking pan. Bake the nuts uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 1 hour or until the nuts are golden. Cool completely.
Store in a tightly covered container. If desired, toss with additional coarse salt and mini pretzels.
