Ridiculously Easy Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix

Ready in a snap, this distinctive blend of spices, savory crunchies and sweet chewy raisins makes a pretty darn good combo - brought it to a poker night hosted by my good friends Justin and Maria last week, and it was a hit. Mix it up, grab a handful and enjoy!

4 cups popped popcorn (I used Orville Redenbacher’s Smart Pop)
1 cup nuts (cashews, peanuts work best)
1 cup whole wheat pretzels, crushed
½ cup raisins
½-1 teaspoon ground cumin
½-1 teaspoon curry powder

Put the first four ingredients in a bowl, sprinkle with the curry and cumin powers, mix well and serve. Store in an airtight container.

Makes about 6 cups, 12 servings
