Couple of mentions of chex mix.
Got a suggestion. Been doing this for about 15 years and this stuff can be ADDICTIVE.
Two major changes, works with any Chex Mix Recipe.
1. Smoke it. Drop the liquid smoke and instead do it in your smoker. Amazing what it does for the flavor. And who is doing their Chex Mix with Liquid Smoke :(
2. Hot sauce. Add some of your favorite hot sauce to the liquid you pour on the chex mix. It gives it a nice bite. Kevin mentioned he adds actual peppers, but I find they don't blend the flavor like using hot sauce.
3. OPTIONAL: We'll add Captain Crunch. Really. Gives us a little more sweet/heat kind of thing. I've actually use almost any kid cereal over the year but CC seems to hold up well.
