This is a recipe from my Idol Ina Garten, "The Barefoot Contessa". It's something different than having mix nuts out for your guest.

A GREAT SNACK! I am a bigtime nut lover and this recipe spiced 'em up!!! Easy preparation and would be great for parties. Prepared as a participant in the Hot, Spicy and Tasty Event in the Cooking Photo Forum June 2009.

Delicious -- DH really enjoyed on a business trip. The only question was that you mention pepper in the directions, but there is no amount of pepper mentioned in the ingredients. Thanks for posting! Dianne
