I love making treats like this southwestern snack mix for my wife to take to work and share with her co-workers. Of course, whatever she takes has to be yummy. It also has to make a pretty good-sized batch, enough to feed over 20 peoples. And some times, I like to sneak in just a bit of spiciness. This mix checks all of the boxes, and it’s easy to make to boot. Popcorn, Chex cereal, Fritos and Cheez-Its. All those goodies in one bowl.

I used my homemade taco seasoning when I made the Southwestern snack mix because I like to be able to control the spiciness and the texture. I often grind my spice mixes to get them a bit finer to avoid the chances of someone biting into a bit chunk of say, oregano. You can of course use a packet of taco seasoning. If you’re making the mix for a crowd you might want to use the mild mix instead of the spicy.

Also make a batch of my spicy Tex-Mex party mix or my Buffalo snack mix for your guests that love a little kick to their snacks. My Cheesy Ranch Chex Mix is always a big hit oo! For Halloween, you’ll love making my Harvest Chex Mix.
