Pecans are my favorite nuts, hands down, and these Voodoo Pecans (aka Spicy Southern Pecans) are the best. You’ll also want to check out my Best Recipes Featuring Pecans.
When my oldest daughter’s boyfriend (now husband) lived in NY and was studying for his finals in grad school, she thought it would be a splendid idea to share some love and send him a care package. We (do I have a frog in my pocket?) prepared all kinds of homemade goodies and she FedEx’d them right over.
He was beyond excited! He was in awe of the variety of homemade snacks. But, he couldn’t quite wrap his head around the Spicy Southern Pecans. I mean, he is a Yankee, bless his heart!
Andrew had never eaten anything that remotely resembled the sweet, spicy, taste of those nuts and didn’t know if he liked them or not, but he couldn’t stop scarfing them down. So he, jokingly, renamed them Voodoo Pecans because they were so addictive and he couldn’t stop eating them.

Historically, Georgia is the leading state in pecan production, so I guess that’s why pecans are my favorite nuts. I grew up eating them!
I also grew up saying pee-con’ (emphasis on the con’) instead of pee-can. My mom always said that a pee-can was something you pee in. How do you pronounce pecan?
Be sure and make these Voodoo Pecans! Yes, the entire family calls these VooDoo Pecans now! They will definitely put a spell on you!
