Well you all know about the house project. We are as busy as ever and I get to provide lunch on Saturday for all of our “helpers”. I’m starting to run out of ideas… Plus I’m totally sick of chips as a side for every meal. I needed a new twist to through in there.
When I saw this idea for Taco Chex Mix over at Shugary Sweets I knew it was calling my name. A different snack for the afternoons out the house plus a twist on plain old Chex Mix not that I don’t love that too!
I adapted it a little and we loved it! If you are looking for a quick and easy snack mix with a bit of a zest to it this is it!
Plus make your own Taco Seasoning and it’s even cheaper!
