Warning, you may find these Sweet and Spicy Mixed nuts very addictive.   In about 10 minutes you can whip up a batch of this great treat for a quick party appetizer, to package up as a gift- or just to snack on during the game.  They make up fast in a skillet and you can adjust the spicy/sweet flavor by tweaking the spices.  I used a nut mix with pecans, almonds, cashews, brazil nuts, and macadamia nuts for this batch, but the pecans are my favorite.
