Chili Lime Peanuts

When you are craving quesadillas and margaritas, but are far from summer's Mexican flavors these peanuts will help you through.  They are sweet, spicy and tangy simultaneously.  I could eat a whole bowl, if they weren't already all gone.  The best part is that they can be made up to a week in advance!
