“Mex” Chex Party Mix

LOVE this Chex Party Mix with a kick!

The use of corn nuts and corn chips and the unique blend of spices makes this snack mix recipe more unique than the traditional versions of Chex mix. Wrap it up in festive containers and give as gifts for the holidays. (Adapted from Chex cereal recipes.)

4 cups GF Rice Chex cereal
2 cups dry roasted peanuts
2 cups bite sized GF pretzel twists

2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
¾ t. garlic powder
1 t. lemon-pepper seasoning
¾ t. chili powder
½ t. chipotle seasoning
3 cups regular or nacho-flavored tortilla chips, broken into bite-sized pieces
