In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Hot and Sweet Mixed Nuts. This recipe uses a combination of peanuts, English walnuts, Brazil nuts, and cashews; however, you may choose other nuts that you particularly like. The nuts get coated with a little butter and brown sugar and then are spiced up with chili powder, cinnamon, red pepper, and salt and then are baked for a short time in the oven.
