Cajun Chex Mix

on February 5, 2016

Just before Christmas, my husband came home with this recipe for Cajun Chex Mix. A co-worker had brought it in for a treat one day and my husband thought it was delicious, so he took it upon himself to make a batch of it. He did a great job and the snack was really good, but he had only made a single batch. Don’t do that. Go ahead and make AT LEAST a double batch. If you and/or your guests like spicy snacks, this is the one for you. This goes great with a cold adult (or not) beverage and would be an awesome addition to your Super Bowl party snack table.

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Cajun Chex Mix

Combine in a large bowl (remember – I strongly suggest that you double this):

2 cups Corn Chex cereal

2 cups Rice Chex cereal

2 cups Wheat Chex cereal

2 cups bite-size pretzels

2 cups of mixed nuts (I used peanuts)

Melt:

1/3 cup butter

Add and mix well:

1 teaspoon red pepper sauce (I used Sriracha)

2 Tablespoons Creole Seasoning (recipe follows)

Pour over Chex mix evenly and stir.

Bake in 250 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours and stir every 15 minutes.

***This is the original recipe from the co-worker, but there was a note at the bottom that the cereal mixture was increased to 12-13 cups and then the butter was increased to 1/2 cup to help spread the seasoning more evenly. It was also suggested to increase the red pepper sauce to 2-3 teaspoons depending on how hot you like it. I used 1/2 cup butter and actually used 2-3 Tablespoons of Sriracha to this amount of cereal mixture. We like it spicy!

Creole Seasoning

2 1/2 Tablespoons paprika

1 Tablespoon garlic powder

1 Tablespoon salt

1 Tablespoon onion powder

1 Tablespoon dried oregano

1 Tablespoon dried thyme

1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper

1 Tablespoon black pepper

This recipe uses the usual Chex Mix mixture of ingredients.

It seems like a lot of butter and seasoning, but that’s what makes it so tasty!

I divided this double batch into two cake pans to bake. It’s easier to stir when they’re not too full.

Here’s the mix, all ready to enjoy with a cold beverage.

Isn’t there some big football game this weekend?

Enjoy this spicy snack at your Super Bowl party. You and your guests will love it – it’s kind of addicting! Depending on how spicy you like it, make sure there are plenty of cold beverages available – adult or otherwise.
