These are wonderful.  You may want to increase spices to your taste.  


1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp  salt 
1 tsp  chili powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch cayenne

1 egg white
2 cups pecan halves
Preheat oven to 300°F and spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Foil and the spray is also a good way to go.

Mix the sugar and spices together in a small bowl.
Beat the egg white with a fork in a bowl; toss in the pecans and stir to coat.
Sprinkle with the spice mixture and coat pecans.
Using your fingers, take out the pecans and transfer to a baking sheet, 
separating them.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
Cool for 5 minutes.
Then use another tray, place pecans and separate if needed; let cool completely.
They should last 5 days if covered and kept dry.

Mine were gone long before that.
