These nuts had great flavor! I've never made spiced nuts in the slow cooker before, but now I can't wait to try out different spice combinations! This would be a great recipe to make on Sunday to have for snacks throughout the week.

I was expecting these to be spicier and was pleasantly surprised when they weren't - yum! Made a delicious post-lunch snack... I can't wait to make these again!

Delicious snack! Would make again!

I put the nuts in my salad and they gave it just the right amount of kick! I enjoyed the level of spice - it's noticeable, but not too hot.

A great mix of nuts, a great mix of spices. The smell while these were cooking was absolutely tantalizing, and it was hard to wait for them to get done. Well worth the wait! Flavorful, not too spicy. A definite party pleaser.

These were FABULOUS! I couldn't stop eating them. These would be a great snack for any occasion :)

Wasn't as spicy as I thought it was going to be but that's completely fine! The flavor is fantastic and this would be a great party snack option.

These nuts were delicious! Loved the mix of flavors. They were much milder than I was expecting, but you could easily throw in more chili powder to kick it up a notch.

Okay so, I know I recognize the spice, but I cannot for the life of me pinpoint what FOOD I recognize it from. Can someone help me out? What recipes are these spices normally used in?? The nuts are very good. )

Tastes like cumin to me... maybe you're recognizing it from taco seasoning?? Anyone else? ) Agree that they are very good!

It does taste sort of like taco seasoning. Good call!
