My husband can't get enough of this stuff. I'll make a tripe batch and put it in a huge tub, and it will last a couple of weeks worth of lunches. NOTE: this is SPICY, so you have been warned! It's not overly hot, but it's got a kick!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Original Stick
  • 3 tablespoons Tabasco sauce (not hot sauce, use Tabasco)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 12 teaspoons cajun seasoning (I use Tony Chachere's)
  • 34 teaspoon garlic powder
  • In a large bowl combine

  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup pretzel
  • 1 cup rye chips (like in Gardettos)
  • 3 cups Rice Chex
  • 3 cups Wheat Chex
  • 3 cups Corn Chex


  1. Preheat the oven for 250*.
  2. Microwave the butter and rest of seasoning until melted. Pour over the already mixed dry ingredients. Toss well until all is coated with the seasoning mixture.
  3. Pour onto 2 cookie sheets and bake in an oven at 250* for 1 hour. Make sure to take out every 15 minutes to toss then put back in the oven.
  4. Pour onto paper towels and let the mixture cool.
  5. Store in an airtight container.

Yum! I made this for a a NYE celebration. I used 2 T. Franks, 1 T sriracha (to make up the difference between Franks and Tabasco), and subbed Cheez-its for the rye chips. I also used Zantarain's cajun spice mix. Just the right amount of spice (i.e. very spicy!!) Thanks!

I to make something similar for my hubby, but I use Dave's insanity sauce instead of Tabasco. Fun and easy to switch up the original Chex Mix recipe. I sometimes use BBQ sauce for the kids, but it tends to burn easier.
