Mixed Masala Nuts and Dried Tropical Fruits

Mixed Masala Nuts and Dried Tropical Fruits
I had small quantity of various nuts in my pantry and didn't know what to do with them.My hubby joked by telling "mix them and add some chilli powder and eat them. You always buy them but never finish!!" Why not that's was a great idea and decide to mix up all the nuts with some dried fruit and they tasted so good that I cannot stop eating them. I'm not a nut eater but now i'm addicted to these nuts.I'm posting the while munching them. These spiced nuts are a great holiday snack or party food.
