Heaven on Earth

I got a care package the other day from a friend in California. She knows that I don't have a Trader Joe's anywhere near me, and that I miss spicy food because Mom doesn't like it. The care package included candied ginger, chile spiced mango, and these little nuggets of heaven.
Thai Lime & Chile Spiced Peanuts. I can make a fairly bland stir fry that Mom will eat, add a few of these, some diced chile spiced mango, and a tablespoon or so of Coriander Chutney to mine, and we're both happy. These are great as a snack too. Tangy, salty, crunchy, with just enough heat to leave the lips and mouth tingly. Mmmmmmm!

We have Trader Joe's here in the Cities. You'll have to come check it out. I think there is one in Woodbury.

Wow, I just tried some of this today (funny, I'd opened it just before I read your blog!) and I thought it was great. I love that kind of little coincidence
