Chex Mix

I really like chex mix. It’s so much better when you make it yourself. I’m not sure why we only make it at holiday times and settle for the crap in the bag the rest of the year — especially given that the stuff you buy doesn’t include nuts. I made a double batch last night. I pretty much follow the recipe on the box with a few additions. I left out the bagel chips and added extra corn/rice chex (we couldn’t find any bagel chips at our grocery store). I also added a teaspoon of hot sauce and a teaspoon of chile powder (from New Mexico red chiles). Not too spicy, but much better than the standard recipe.
