Recipe: Ramen Noodles with Spicy Pecan Sauce

This recipe spotlights our chili-spiked Firekracker candied pecans, made with a blend of five chilis to give a medium level of heat and a huge depth of flavor (think of it as a 2 on a 4-chili heat scale.) Here at Nutkrack, we like to say Firekracker is "Midwest spicy" because it doesn't offend anyone. 😉

🌶 Our Firekracker pecans contain only 5g of sugar per serving, are vegan, certified gluten-free, filled with healthy fats and are keto-friendly.  

🍜 This recipe can be served hot, with the cooling vegetables over top, or chilled for a hearty, refreshing meal. Any vegetables or additional protein can be added... make it your own!
