Spicy Sriracha Snack Chex Mix For The Big Game

Spicy Sriracha Snack Chex Mix is one of those recipes that’s a snap to make and quick to disappear. It’s perfect for when a whole lot of munching is going on.

Spicy Sriracha Snack Chex Mix is one of those recipes that are so addicting once you get started munching. Of course, you have to follow a pretzel with a cracker with a goldfish and then an almond until you can see the bottom of the bowl and wonder how in the heck that happened!

It’s finally cooling off after a too warm summer, and our favorite football team is on the field. We love inviting people over to watch it and I’m always looking for munchies to snack on. Our Freaky Friday Fall edition was perfect timing.

The Freaky Friday blog hop is a group of bloggers that are secretly assigned each others’ blogs from which we choose a recipe appropriate for the theme.

The blog that I was given was Take Two Tapas. Take Two Tapas is the brain project of the amazing Jennifer. Jennifer started her blog because she enjoyed grazing on several different dishes instead of filling up on a big plate. I KNEW that the biggest problem with picking a recipe was picking just one recipe!

She has a ton that works for tailgating or entertaining!

Her recipe for Spicy Sriracha Snack Chex Mix was exactly what I was looking for. Other contenders were her Wasabi Ginger Cheese Ball and her Extra Cheesy Pepperoni Pizza Skillet Dip. She is an amazing mixologist too. Check out her 3 Ingredient Margarita Beer Shandy Cocktail. She has a tailgating checklist available right now so run on over and pick it up.

Currently in the oven. My house smells SO good! Can't wait to watch the Cougs play while snacking on this mix. If it tastes as good as it smells I'll be making a couple more batches for our New Years party!

Thank you, Brooke! I sent some of this to work with my husband and one of the single guys asked for the recipe and now makes it for himself. I got a real kick out of that. I hope everyone loved it!

My husband hosts a card game every other month and I know he and his fellow card players would quickly empty a bowl of this spicy mix.
