12 December 1984, Paris (TX) News, pg. 1C, col. 2:
TEXAS HOT PEANUTS
1 pound shelled raw peanuts
1/4 cup peanut oil
1 tablespoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon red pepper

Place peanuts in shallow roasting pan; pour peanut oil over peanuts, stir to coat. Roast to 350 degrees F. for 35 minutes, stirring twice. Drain, combine remaining ingredients; roll peanuts in spices, coating well.
