    These were very good and easy to make. Definitely 5 stars. I also did a batch with curry powder and lemon juice. They came out great too. Thanks for sharing!!!

    I thought these were great nuts! I used Recipe #38719 for the seasoning. 1/16 of the recipe made the perfect amount for this recipe. I used walnuts, almonds and peanuts, and I think the walnuts were my favorite. I am going to make another batch of just walnuts. These are very flavorful without being overpowering, you can still taste the good flavor of the nuts! They are easy too. Thanks!

    Great spiced nut mix! I used peanuts and cashews for my niut mix. The lime juice toned down the spices I think just enough so the chili mix was noticeable, but not over powering.

    I am fond of making spiced nuts as gifts, a nice change of pace from cookies or other baked goods, not to mention they are so easy to prepare. I made these using whole natural almonds and they were a true pleaser. The amount of butter and spicy initially did not seem to be enough for the nuts but on baking, the results were just perfect. Did not have garlic salt, so I used 1/2 garlic powder and 1/2 kosher salt. Topped them after cooking with additional salt. Yummy.

    I thought these were wonderful and a great way to use leftover nuts. I had pecans, cashews, macadamias and walnuts, some toasted and some raw. They all seemed to combine nicely although I think the pecans toasted faster than the rest. I liked the butter flavour, the slight tang from the lime and the heat from the chilli seasoning. I stored the nuts in the freezer and can't wait to serve them with some ice-cold beers the next time some friends drop by.

    The DH accidently bought salted macadamia nuts so I used those and instead of using garlic salt I used garlic powder, wasn't to sure about chilli seasoning so used chilli powder and wow these a great, think they will be even better after maturing for a day (if they last that long). Thank you Boomette, made for Every Day a Holiday. UPDATE 10 days later WOW we all thought these had so much flavour and definately had the WOW factor definately worthy of more than 5 stars.
