Chili Spiced Pecans

2 T butter
1/4 C light brown sugar
1 t paprika
2 t chili powder
1 T cumin
1/2 t salt


4 C pecan halves


1/4 C apple cider vinegar


In a large preheated skillet, add butter and swirl until melted and bubbly. Add brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, cumin, salt and mix well. Add pecans and stir to coat evenly with sugar/butter mix. Add apple cider vinegar and bring mixture to a boil. Continue to stir and mix until liquid evaporates and pecans are evenly coated. Spread pecans on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick baking spray. Place into a preheated 325 degree oven. Bake for 10 minutes. Rotate cookie sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Remove to a cooling rack. Pecans can stick together. Break apart for munching. Careful, these are impossible to stop eating.
