Chile-Lime Peanuts

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_lime_peanuts.html

From EatingWell:  November/December 2010

These spicy nuts were inspired by ones sold by street vendors across Mexico. If you can only find salted peanuts, omit the added salt. Add the maximum amount of cayenne pepper if you want an extra hit of spice.
