Healthy snacking done spicy style.

Edamame are a delicious healthy treat, perfect as an appetizer or snack. They are near perfect lightly salted, but why not go for spicy nirvana by adding in some crushed red pepper and cayenne? Think of them like edamame extreme, salty with a punch. If you want a little less spiciness, try swapping out the cayenne for chili pepper powder
