Mairlyn Olshanksy's Spicy Pecans

1 Tablespoon (9 g) chili powder
1 tsp. cayenne (I used 1/2 tsp. habanero)
1 Tabloespoon (20 g) kosher or sea salt
1 Tablespoon (1.5 g) Splenda or Sugar Twin
2 Tablespoons (30 ml) vegetable oil
3 Cups (450 g) pecan halves
1 tsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)

Combine the first four ingredients in a small bowl.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large, heavy skillet. Saute the nuts, stirring, until they are dry and begin to sizzle, about 8 minutes.

Sprinkle the spice mixture over the nuts and stir to coat evenly. Optional: Sprinkle the lemon juice over the nuts and cook until it is evaporated.

Turn the nuts out onto layers of paper towels to drain. Serve warm or at room temperature.
