Taco snack mix


3 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon taco seasoning

1 tablespoon ranch salad dressing mix

1 cup Cheerio cereal

1 cup corn Chex cereal

1 cup wheat Chex cereal

1 cup cheese crackers

juice of 1 lime


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a 9×13 casserole pan while the oven is heating. When it is mostly melted, remove it and mix in the taco seasoning, ranch mix, and lime juice. Stir fully. Place it back in the oven until fully melted. Once complete, add in the cereal and stir to coat. Replace the pan into the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Stir at the halfway point.





Sriracha garlic honey snack mix


Don’t get me wrong. I like the traditional Chex mix. I grew up eating it. The older I get, the less salt I want and the more heat I need. This mix is healthier and perfect. It is a small change from the recipe on the box of Chex cereal.

6 cups Chex cereal – corn, wheat, or mix

1 cup pretzels

1 cup mixed nuts – salted

5 tablespoons sriracha

2 tablespoons honey

3 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon granulated garlic

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a 9×13 baking pan, add butter, sriracha, honey, and garlic. Place in oven until melted. Stir fully. Add cereal, pretzels, and nuts. Mix completely. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes. Stir the mix every 15 minutes. Cool and enjoy.
