Taco Chex Mix

Taco Chex Mix ~ Spice up your favoite snack mix! via #recipe #snackmix

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!

    Do you think I could use Hidden Valley Ranch Fiesta dip mix instead of taco seasoning?

    Thank you,

  • Dolores

    I had a recipe called Julie’s Party mix it had all
    sorts of good things in it–chex, pretzels, cheese
    crackers, small rye etc. it was mixed with popcorn
    oil and put in the oven. I lost the recipe and I’m
    wondering if you have any idea what I’m talking about?
