Texas-Inspired Snack Mix


1/2 (14 oz) box of Rice Chex cereal
1/2 (14 oz) box of Corn chex cereal (you could use wheat in place of either of these)
1/2 (1 lb) bag of pretzel sticks
1 (7.5 oz) bag of Bugles (regular)
1 regular can (8.75 oz of deluxe mixed nuts
1 Cup of your favorite nut – or use more mixed nuts
1-1/2 sticks (1/2 Cup) butter
2 Tbsp Texas Chili Seasoning
1/2 Tbsp Worcestershire Powder
1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1/2 Tbsp your favorite Hot Sauce


Preheat oven to 250°F.  Combine the cereal, pretzels, bugles, and nuts in a large bowl, and mix them up.

Melt the stick of butter in a saute pan over medium heat, then add the dry seasonings and hot sauce, stirring to dissolve the spices into the butter.  Remove from heat.

Spoon the spiced butter mixture over the dry ingredients and toss to thoroughly coat all the snack mix pieces in butter.

Transfer spiced snack mixture to a rimmed baking sheet. If ingredients cannot be spread out in a single layer on the baking sheet, divide the mixture between two baking sheets.

Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Remove baking sheet(s) from oven and allow mix to cool before serving, or storing (up to 1 week) in an air-tight container.
