Spicy Snack Mix

Some recipes call for dill which we didn't care for. Others for more cayenne pepper which was too spicy for the grandkids. This is the mix that we came up with which the kids and adults all enjoy. If you would like it hotter, just add more cayenne pepper (up to 1 teaspoon is good).

Full of ranch flavor with a punch of heat, this snack mix recipe is fabulous! The marinade is really the star of this recipe and the flavor is amazing. This will be great for watching ball games, a movie night, after-school snack or, you can package it in cute mason jars to give out as a housewarming gift at the holidays.
