“This is my husband's spicy and delicious recipe! It's a tradition during football season. Dry crab boil and jalapenos instill the peanuts with a distinctive salty, spicy flavor.”

My family and I thought these were fantastic! I have a "normal" sized crock pot, and found a 1.5 oz bag of peanuts worked perfectly. I used HALF of an Old Bay seafood one-step shrimp & crab boil 3 oz package, and instead of the jalapenos, some (about half cup?) tabasco sauce. I also added some kosher salt (1-2 cups?) since I like em salty. Cooked them in the crock pot on high stirring occasionally for 10-12 hours. Had no problems with maintaining water level. The taste was fantastic, and due to popular demand had to make a second batch the next day.

I'm not sure how this recipe can call for 5 pounds of peanuts?? Even using an extra large crock pot, I could not put that many in. I filled it with as much as I could, probably too much, for I could not get enough water in it. I ended up cooking them over night, then adding more water in the morning, and continued to cook on low the rest of the day and early evening. I also added salt. After all that said....they are very tasty, and I will try again with less peanuts next time.
