Spicy Tex-Mex Party Mix

I’ve made a lot of snack mixes in my time. Traditional ones. Sweet ones. Savory ones. Sour cream and onion ones. Cajun ones. Italian-ish ones. And now, this most awesome spicy Tex-Mex party mix. Quick and easy to make.

Spicy Tex-Mex Party Mix

I really prefer our homemade taco seasoning in this spicy Tex-Mex party mix over the store bought stuff in the little packets, and not just because it’s so much cheaper to make. When you make the seasoning from scratch you can control how fine or coarse it is. For this party mix I wanted a little texture from the seasoning so I didn’t grind it for very long.

You can also substitute your favorite Chex cereal for the cereal. Or use a combination of your favorite ones!

Also try my southwestern snack mix. Less kick, great flavor.

Buffalo Ranch Snack Mix

If you’re looking for the perfect snack for a big party, you have found it. I found this Buffalo Ranch snack mix to be so addicting (specially the Bugles). There’s just a hint of hot wing sauce. But not enough to hide the flavors of all the goodies. One surprise? Toasted Ramen noodles! They add a special, unexpected, crunch.

Skip The Wings. Serve This Instead.

This Buffalo Ranch snack mix will be a big hit at your next party. Us folks that like a little spiciness hate when we go to a party only to find bland snacks. Don’t serve bland snacks. Serve this instead!

Also try my Goldfish cracker treats. It’s easy to take your standard ho-hum snacks and kick them up a notch!
