Hot Tepin Peanuts

Hot Tepin Peanuts


  • 2-3 Tablespoons corn oil or peanut oil
  • 1 cup raw peanuts
  • 1-2 Tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon Tepin powder (to taste)
  • salt, to taste


Combine 1/4 teaspoon Tepin powder with one Tablespoon sugar. In a cast-iron or non stick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat, but do not let it smoke or burn. Add peanuts and stir in oil till lightly toasted. Remove and drain on paper towels. Add garlic to pan with only a little oil, just enough to keep from sticking. Stir one minute till lightly golden, then add Tepin/sugar mix. Stir 30 seconds, then add peanuts and salt. Stir again for 30 seconds or not burn peanuts. Spread on a plate until cool. Serve in a bowl with your favorite beverage. Caution: Cook in a well-ventilated room, as the vaporizing Tepin oil can irritate your nose and throat!
