Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 300^. Line two 15x10x1-inch pans with foil. Spray foil with canola oil. In large bowl, mix snack mix, pecans and bacon(I use the whole pound of bacon, lover that I am-lol);set aside.
In 2-quart saucepan, heat sugar,butter and corn syrup over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bubbly around edges. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally; remove from heat. Cool 2 minutes. Carefully stir in bourbon(I add a little more) and chipotle chili powder( I omit this and add 1 teaspoon zest of lime). Pour over snack mixture; toss until evenly coated.
