Shell the nuts and place on a microwave safe plate. Spray nuts lightly with non-stick cooking oil. Stir the nuts and spray lightly again. This small amount of oil helps with browning and speeds up the toasting process. Sprinkle with chili powder and toss, if desired.
Microwave uncovered on high for 1 minute. The time will vary depending on the size, type and temperature of the nut you use, and time may also fluctuate depending on type of microwave.
Stir and microwave for another minute.
Taste to see how the toasting is proceeding. Add more microwave cooking time 30 seconds at a time, because nuts can burn quickly. Stir after each addition of time.
Small amounts of thin nuts (for example, sliced almonds) could be finished at 2 minutes. Larger amounts of nuts, such as slivered or whole almonds, walnuts or pecans will take an additional minute or two more microwaving to become lightly browned and smell fragrant. Cool and eat.
If you have any leftovers; store toasted nuts in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 weeks or freeze them in a zip closure airtight freezer bag. Do not toast more than 1 cup at a time.
