From Land O' Lakes website. Made these tonight. Added Frosted Flakes Gold to the mix. Sprinkled with Seasoned Salt. Goes great with a cold beer.
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package taco seasoning mix
- 8 cups oven-toasted Corn Chex
- Heat oven to 350 degreesF. Melt butter in 13 x9-inch baking pan on oven (3 to 4 minutes); stirring in seasoning mix. Add cereal; stir to coat evenly. Bake, stirring after half the time, for 10 to 12 minutes or until cereal is crisp.
- Microwave Directions: Melt butter in 12x8-inch glass baking dish on HIGH (1 to 2 minutes);stir in seasoning mix. Add cereal; stir to coat evenly. Microwave on HIGH, stirring after half the time, until cereal is crisp (4 to 5 minutes).
This was quite different from regular chex mix. I used my taco seasoning mix (can't use the packaged ones) and the oregano in my recipe was a little too much. Will make this again omitting the oregano. Made for the winner of 1~2~3 Hits It's Not Easy Being Green ~ March 2010.
