Low-carb spicy pecans

6 cups pecan halves
4-5 tablespoons butter, melted
between 1/8 and 1/4 cup sugar substitute (my favorites are either Wholesome Sweetener's Organic Zero or Splenda)
4-8 teaspoons chili powder

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Toss pecan halves with melted butter. After well-coated, sprinkle chili over pecans and toss thoroughly, then same with sugar. Spread nuts evenly over cookie sheet covered with parchment paper or Silpat.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Watch carefully because the pecans go brown quickly once they start. Cool on rack, then serve.

These nuts are great for snacking, with fruit, or an embellishment for tossed salads. Enjoy!
