Hot and Spicy Party Mix

Party mix is a staple at any holiday gathering. My recipe is basic, but it has undergone a few tweaks from time to time. This hot and spicy version is one my family enjoys. If you want to liven things up, this is the recipe to try. It will be a hit anytime, so don't forget it for New Year's Eve and Super Bowl, too.

I like to line my pan with foil when I make the party mix just so there will be less clean up afterward. The fewer dishes you have to wash, the more time there is to spend with your guests.

Hot and Spicy Party Mix

10 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons Sriracha hot sauce
2 tablespoons chipotle tabasco sauce
2 teaspoons seasoned salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 cups corn Chex cereal
3 cups rice Chex cereal
3 cups wheat Chex cereal
3 cups Goldfish crackers
3 cups Goldfish pretzel crackers
2 cups deluxe nuts

Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line a large pan with heavy aluminum foil. Melt butter in the pan in the oven, then stir in Worcestershire sauce, Sriracha sauce, tabasco sauce, seasoned salt, garlic salt, and onion powder. Stir in corn Chex, rice Chex, and wheat Chex, stirring until evenly coated. Add Goldfish crackers, Goldfish pretzels, and nuts, stirring all until coated with seasonings. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool, store in airtight container.
