This is a wonderful snack recipe! I took a doubled recipe to an outdoor/bring-a-treat-to-share party and it was gone in minutes! I have since had many phone calls and emails requesting the recipe. It will be a staple at my house from now on!
I mean't to rate this weeks ago (sorry for the late review) I needed to bring a dish for a tailgate party we were having at work and it was a last minute thing. I didn't want to bring all the usual (chips & dips) This one was suggested to me and I jumped on it. (love the name) This was an absolute hit. Everyone really enjoyed this. Luckily I saved a little for home. It was gone in no time and the recipe was requested by many. Thanks Sue, you made me look good!
This was a hit at our party! Spicy but good! Loved the Frito's and Peanuts toasted with this coating Thanks Sue L ; )
