I am hopelessly hooked on this recipe. When I first made it I figured it would be a second to the party mix I have made for eons.........was I ever surprised, this is my number one, favorite party mix. Do I need a party to make it ? No way, I make it just for me a lot. I usually double the recipe for a party.

How to Make Mexican Party Mix


  1. Pre-heat oven to 250*

    Melt butter with chili powder, garlic salt and onion salt.
  2. Mix Crispex, Frito's, Parmesan cheese and nuts in a bowl. Pour butter mixture over the ingredients in the bowl. Mix to coat. Pour into a baking pan.
  3. Bake at 250* for 15 minutes, stir, bake another 15 minutes, stir, bake a final 15 minutes.
  4. Cooks note: I use garlic powder and onion powder so I add salt. I also prefer Cashew Nuts over peanuts.
