Tortilla chips, chili powder and cayenne pepper lend to the Mexican flavor of this snack mix, while corn syrup and brown sugar add a bit of sweetness. I like to package it in holiday tins to give as gifts.—Beverly Phillips, Duncanville, Texas
Family and friends will munch this fun mix of crackers, nuts and ranch dressing by the handfuls! "Everyone is sure to find something they like," writes field editor Sharon Nichols of Brookings, South Dakota. "If not, substitute other snack packages to vary the flavors."
Tailgaters love to munch, so this crunchy snack mix is perfect for a pre-game spread. "Everyone who has tried it likes it," says Lucile Cline of Wichita, Kansas. A retired Extension home economist, Lucile won a ribbon at the state fair with this recipe.
One handful of these crispy oyster crackers is never enough. Taco seasoning and chili powder give the munchies a fun southwestern flavor. Partygoers always come back for more.
