Sweet Chipotle Snack Mix

Have this addictive mix on hand for nibbling all weekend (we also use some in a salad on Saturday). Ground chipotle pepper and chili spices combine with sugar to coat this three-part combo of pepitas (pumpkinseeds), almonds, and cashews. Make it ahead of time and bring with you.
