Ingredients

6-8 cloves garlic, whole

1 Tbsp fresh piquin or small dried chiles

4 Tbsp corn oil

2 cups whole raw peanuts

sea salt

lime quarters

Directions

Cook the garlic and chiles in the oil until the garlic is light gold.

Add the peanuts and continue to cook until the peanuts are roasted.

Remove with slotted spoon to paper towels. Sprinkle with ground sea salt.

The peanuts are served warm with wedges of lime to squeeze over them. Other varieties of nuts such as cashews, pistachios, almonds, and so on can be prepared in the same way.

They are especially tasty with icy cold beer or with tequila drinks. Adjust the hotness by reducing the garlic and peppers. Small dried chiles are available and are a good substitute for piquin chiles if you cannot find them.

"Good but I think these buffalo chicken breasts are better grilled - slightly brown on each side and then baste generously with sauce turning once or twice until cooked through. But, this is a good substitute for nights when firing up the grill would not be optimal. Made several tweaks. Also recommend keeping some sauce on the side for dipping." - mrsoul51
