Lime and Spicy Pistachios

These nuts should come with a warning sign—they're highly addictive, especially when warm. Change up the recipe to your liking by adding, cumin, oregano and Tabasco, or ginger, sesame seeds and soy sauce. It’s easy to get creative, but remember not to add too much liquid to the spice rub.
