No buffet or party spread is complete without a bowl of nuts. Why serve plain old nuts when you can give them a sweet and spicy kick in just under half an hour? This easy recipe uses our chipotle hot sauce to add a punch of flavour.

If you’d rather not use cashews, you can use any nut that takes your fancy! Want to add a little more heat? A sprinkle of chilli flakes will do the job..
