I have used this recipe time and again!

I made adjustments on the recipe to suit my tastes: This is what I did:

I used 2 packages of soup crackers: (12.5 oz. each), 2 cups Cheddar cheese goldfish

crackers, 2 Tbsp. sugar, 1/4 cup ground cumin as I'd used up my taco seasoning supply, & used 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning in place of the oregano. I had the chili powder, so I used that! I use a large roasting pan to prepare my snack mixes as it's deep and I don't have to be concerned

about the mix falling of the pan when a 15x10x1" pan would be used & when I stir

the mix! I've prepared this taco mix for our Chapel coffee breaks and everyone likes the flavor! Thank you for this recipe, Diane
