You'd be nuts not to try it!Homemade spiced nuts are holiday treats welcomed by everyone. I make these every year and place them on my dining room table for guests to enjoy during parties, pot lucks and get-togethers. The spicy chipotle twist usually surprises their taste buds, but guests come back to devour more every time.

1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 pound pecan halves, unsalted
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
