The hack for putting this recipe together is to have a total of 2.5 cups of any nuts or bite size crackers. Spices of your choice. We like it a little spicy so we added chili powder and a little earthy so we added a little cumin and garlic for good measure. However, really you could any spices your little heart desires.
