They are a staple of the Mexican snack food diet and although they are very useful in the kitchen and can add real style and finesse to any meal, most are eaten on the hoof, by shaking a bag of these crunchy nuts with a liberal sprinkling of chili powder and a large dash of fresh lime juice. Interestingly this type of nut is more closely related to leguminous vegetables and pulses such as peas, beans or lentils. This means that Japanese and other peanuts have the similar health benefits to these foods.
