    Spicy Nut and Raisin Mix

    As restaurateurs we are always on the lookout for spicy items like this for nibbling with drinks at the bar. Our inspiration here came from chex‹a snack that Mary Sue remembers from her mother¹s bridge party nights.

  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed to a paste
  • 2/3 cup almonds with skins
  • 2/3 cup pecans
  • 2/3 cup unsalted cashew pieces or pistachios
  • 3 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chile powder mix
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/3 cup thin pretzel sticks, broken in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of sugar
  • Preheat the oven to 350 . Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Sauté the garlic 1 to 2 minutes. Add the almonds, pecans, cashews, Worcestershire sauce, chile powder, and cayenne and mix well. Stir in the pretzels and cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a baking sheet. Add the remaining ingredients and bake, shaking the pan and stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Turn the mixture into a serving dish and cool.
    Makes about 4 cups
