Spicy Chex Mix

"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!"

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
