Taco Seasoned Snack Mix

Ingredients:

2 C. pretzels, any shape

2 C. oyster crackers

2 C. chex mix (I used wheat, it’s what I had on hand)

2 C. Annie’s cheddar bunnies or Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers

1/8 – ¼ C. of taco seasoning (start with 1/8 of a cup – you don’t want to over do it and make it too salty)

4 tbs. melted butter

 

Taco Seasoning Ingredients:

½ C. chili powder

¼ C. onion powder

1/8 C. cumin

1 tbs garlic powder

1 tbs. Paprika

1 tbs. Salt

 

Directions to make Taco Seasoning:

Combine the ingredients, mixing well and store in an airtight container ( I use a mason jar).  Add about 1/-1/4 C. of seasoning and ¾ C. water to 1 pound of ground beef for tacos. 😉
