Sweet Chipotle Almonds

On Labor Day of our San Fran trip we visited Alcatraz. Touring the island was cool and educational and historic and a bit creepy and all that good stuff…but mostly it was hunger inducing. Immediately following the crew’s announcement that there was no food available on the island all I could think about was when my next meal would be. No food? what.the.heck

After walking the 4 football length stretches up hill to tour the grounds then back down again I was ravenous despite having had breakfast probably 2 hours earlier. While we waited for the ferry to bring us back the 4 of us walked through the gift store. The only food there was water and sweet chipotle almonds. I bought both.

Surprisingly the almonds were dee-lish. They were sweet initially then a kick of heat at the end. They were a good snack to keep in my purse for whenever hunger took over. Once we made it back to Chicago we decided to recreate these slightly spicy almonds right away.
