Top Review by Mommys good stuff

I used 2 cans of planters mixed nuts which was about 6 cups give or take a nut. I wish I had used a bit more seasoning. I would have preferred more spice. I had some a few years back at christmas as a gift from a patient and was hoping for more bite. Next time. Other wise very good and extremely easy!
