Chex Mix

Every Thanksgiving and sometimes at Christmas, I make my "famous" chex mix. I used to send it to my husband while he was overseas with every care package (twice monthly) too. He loves it, as does the rest of my family. I make it a little different than the recipe on the box...spicy, and it's super delish. In fact, I'm making a batch right now to take with us to Thanksgiving. It smells so good. :)

Ingredients:
3 cups corn chex
3 cups wheat chex
3 cups rice chex
1 cup cheese squares
1 cup peanuts (if you like them)
1 cup pretzel sticks (again, if you like them)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon season salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 cup butter
1/2 Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chipotle tabasco sauce
1/4 cholula hot sauce

Directions:
1. Heat oven to 250F.
2. Combine chex, cheese squares, peanuts, and pretzels in a large bowl.
3. Melt butter.
4. Add garlic powder, season salt, onion powder to butter, and stir.
5. Add Worcestershire sauce, tabasco and cholula to butter and stir.
6. Drizzle over chex mixture, making sure it's all coated.
7. Spread evenly onto 2 cookie sheets.
8. Bake in oven for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
