Chex mix is a fun and addictive snack that’s easy to make for a crowd. My spicy garlic chex mix is super quick and easy to make, and packs a punch of spicy flavor.
You’ll love this recipe because it takes just minutes to throw together, and toasts up nice and crunchy in the oven. Take this salty, crunchy, addictive snack mix to your next party, barbecue, or get-together. It’s an instant favorite!
Let’s talk about spice. This chex mix is pretty spicy. On a scale of hot wings, I enjoy mild and medium wings, but hot wings start to be ‘too hot’ for my comfort level.
I consider this chex mix to be a medium level of spicy. You will feel some heat, but it’s not overwhelming.
If you’re not a spicy food person, I would recommend cutting the amount of cayenne pepper in half. If you absolutely love spicy foods, you may be able to tolerate even more cayenne pepper.
I would recommend trying the recipe as is, then adjusting your next batch to suit your taste buds.
Love chex mix? I also have a recipe for Buffalo Ranch Chex Snack Mix. It’s highly addictive! You’ve been warned.
