I found this recipe many years ago in a Ronald McDonald House cookbook. It is one of my most requested snacks when entertaining. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as we do.

1 (18 oz) box

1 (18 oz) box
wheat chex
1 (18 oz) box
rice chex
1 (16 oz) pkg

1 lb

1 lb

1 c
vegetable oil
3 Tbsp
worcestshire sauce
1 tsp
celery salt
2 oz
4 Tbsp
2 Tbsp
cayenne pepper
3 Tbsp
garlic powder

How to Make Texas Trash


  • 1Mix the corn chex, rice chex, wheat chex, pretzels, pecans, and cashews in a large plastic bag. Divide mixture into two 1 gallon roaster pans and set aside.
  • 2In a large saucepan, over medium heat, combine the butter, oil, worcestershire sauce, celery salt, accent, allspice, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Stir well. This does not need to come to a boil. Just stir and heat.
  • 3Add the seasoning mixture to the dry mixture and blend very well. Cook at 200 degrees for 3 hours, stirring every 30 minutes. This yields 4 gallons.
  • 4NOTE: I found that using a Nesco or other electric roaster pan works just as well. I mix all the dry ingredients in that and then stir in the wet mixture.
