For this recipe, you will need a few simple ingredients you may already have in your pantry. With Raw peanuts, jalapenos, spices of your choice and water, you have everything you need to make delicious spicy boiled peanuts.  


2 pounds of Hampton Raw Peanuts 

3 jalapeños, sliced 

½ cup kosher salt 

2 tbsp red pepper flakes 

2 tablespoon Cajun seasoning 

1 tablespoon garlic powder 

10 cups water 


Making Spicy Boiled Peanuts: 

  1. Grab a 6-quart crockpot and fill it with two pounds of Hampton Farms Raw peanuts.

  2. Season your peanuts to your liking, but we recommend two tablespoons of red pepper flakes, Cajun seasoning, a half cup of kosher salt, and one tablespoon of garlic powder for that extra spice. Adjust the spiciness to taste.  

  3. Once your seasonings are in, slice up three jalapeños (or more for a bigger kick) and stir them into the crockpot. 

  4. Cover the crockpot and cook on low heat for 22 to 24 hours. Cooking times may vary, so be sure to keep an eye on those peanuts. You will know if your peanuts are properly boiled if the peanuts are tender. To check for the right consistency, you can attempt to squish a peanut with a spoon or a fork. 

  5. Once the peanuts are properly cooked, drain them. You can serve them hot or cold. Regardless of how you serve them, you’ll still feel the heat!

  6. Enjoy!
