I made a half batch and they disappeared quickly. I do recommend checking occasionally and stirring to prevent burning. I added a pinch of cayenne. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Pale, uninteresting flavor maybe resulted from my using a mild chili powder in making the spice, but my other ingredients (coriander, lime zest, cumin, salt, garlic, onion powder and cayenne) were bright, so I'm not optimistic about much improvement. Using a crock pot for this, given the tradeoff of having to clean it afterwards, is excessive. Use a large skillet, stir fry five minutes, and it's done.

Very good and easy. I added some habanero powder to really kick it up some!

I used a combination of sesame seeds, pepitas and sunflower seeds. Used a mini-crock pot and my own posted, salt-free Mexican seasoning mix. Cut the recipe in half, too. I watched the crockpot carefully to be sure the sesame seeds didn't burn.

Loved this recipe. I liked that the spices did not overpower the taste of the cashews (which is my favorite nut). I couldn't find unsalted dry roasted cashews, so I dry roasted my own and let them cool. Thanks for a new keeper.

They were just okay. Not good enough to make again, however, they were edible. Not worth the extra calories, fat and sodium you are adding.

By far the best method for spiced nuts, very tasty and the spices stay well on the nuts.

These are a good way to kick up the taste of plain nuts. I used dry-roasted peanuts because I couldn't find the cashews. I cooked for exactly 2 hours and a few nuts around the edges were burnt. I also felt they needed a little more spice, so I sprinkled some cayenne and salt over the batch after cooking.
