Tailgator's Spicy Snack Mix

Leslie Speed Dutton


I got the original receive from Good Cook and made some changes that my family likesYou will always find this recipe on my table when entertaining or the kids have a sleep over. This is an addictive snack to munch on while watching sports, movies or to have out for parties.

The receive is very Versatel. Corn Chex can substitute one of the other Chex cereals or added to it. It can be made gluten free by simply changing a few ingredients. You can also make this spicier by adding a 1teaspoon of any kind of hot sauce.

Anyway you make it, your family and friends are bound to enjoy it! :)
