Lime Chile Snack Nuts

I’m a sucker for lime chile snack flavoring, and when it comes to nuts, it’s a perfect flavor combination. The only problem, though, is that most store-bought snack mixes are full of all sorts of additives. That isn’t a problem with this version—and even better, it tastes far better than any store-bought snack nut mix I’ve ever tried! Once you find the proportions you prefer, I’m sure you’ll feel the same way.

Notes

Use the flavors and nuts you prefer; just keep in mind some that nuts are better for keto practitioners than others. (For instance, cashews and pistachios are relatively high in carbs compared to the nuts used here.) Similarly, you can use seeds, flaked coconut—the flavors you love.
