These Chipotle Lime Almonds are an easy way to spice up snack time!
While we snack all your long, we definitely do more so in the summer! Snacks that are light and tasty for spending the day outdoors, or as appetizers for summer entertaining are a must! We love options like hummus, fresh veggies, fruit, crackers, and almonds!
Since the season is already off to a fun start with plenty of parties coming up, I went to Walmart and picked up Blue Diamond Almond Nut-Thins, Gourmet Almonds, and Sabra Hummus (the Roasted Red Pepper flavor is perfect for summer!) to start to prepare.
Every time I buy hummus, I’m reminded of how my fiancé was afraid to try it because he was convinced he wouldn’t like it. Now he eats more than I do, and I eat a lot! We enjoy it with crackers, chips, fresh vegetables, on sandwiches, and you can even dip chicken wings in it! That’s just the beginning! There are so many ways you can enjoy Sabra Hummus!
Nut-Thins are wheat and gluten free and super crispy and crunchy! They are actually made with real Blue Diamond Almonds and don’t contain any artificial ingredients. They are delicious with dips, hummus, or toppings!
Blue Diamond Gourmet Almonds are made with high-quality Nonpareil almonds and seasoned to perfection! They add a premium touch for special occasions and when entertaining your friends and family. The Garlic, Herb, and Olive Oil variety is my favorite ! I love the chef-inspired seasonings and while they are delicious on their own, I’m going to share with you how I easily add a bit of summer-inspired spice to them for those that like a little more heat!
CHIPOTLE LIME ALMONDS RECIPE
Zest and juice a lime.

Add the Blue Diamond Garlic, Herb, and Olive Oil Gourmet Almonds and the chipotle powder. Stir constantly until evenly coated.
Stir in the lime juice and cook for a minute or two until well coated and warm. Transfer to a plate to cool.
