Heat cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter, and dump in nuts. Heat and stir the nuts until they
brown a bit. Beware too high a heat or too infrequent a stirring, otherwise pick out and discard burned nuts.
Place the seasonings into the bag and shake to mix. Transfer the browned nuts from the hot skillet to the bag,
crimp the top, and shake. This distributes the seasonings onto the buttery nuts, and allows the excess butter to
be absorbed by the bag. When cooled a bit, pour nuts back into their containers.
Have recipe ready at party, for those who ask. You will probably want to step up the pepper quantities, as these
are spiced pretty much to appeal even to "the old aunties" and those with mainstream tastes.
My wife (not a chile-head) makes me keep the small can home when I make these, so she can sprinkle the nuts on her
Chinese food. ( adapted from the recipe for Hot Cashews in a cookbook called "Hot Stuff" that I got at a garage
sale a long time ago. -gus
