Day 152 : Chipotle Lime Mixed Nuts

Since the first batch of mixed nuts turned out so well I have been meaning to try other flavor combinations.  This one tonight turned out well I think, and could only have been better if I had been able to put some pecans in the mix like last time.  However I only had almonds, macadamia nuts, and cashews, so I threw in some dry roasted peanuts to fill things out a bit (I dislike peanuts lol).  I liked using the popcorn seasoning because it already had some salt in it, and likely some sort of butter flavor which really made them extra yummy.
