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.

- 6 tablespoons chili powder
- 4 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 6 cups unsalted cocktail peanuts
