Buffalo Chex Mix

I’m not sure that I prefer this buffalo version over the classic Chex Mix, but it’s nice to change things up once in awhile. Regardless, if you put a bowl of it in front of me, I’ll just keep eating it.

If you want to use Corn Chex, different nuts (or no nuts), or more or less hot sauce, go right ahead.  You could even add some cayenne pepper for an extra kick. This is the kind of recipe you can change easily to suit your tastes. It would make a great snack for Super Bowl Sunday.

  1. I just love Chex Mix and have always wondered what the kind made with Ranch would be like. I’ll have to give it a try. It’s one of those great snacking-I-can’t-put-it-down things =o)

  2. This sounds so perfect! I love Chex Mix but have always wanted to make my own. This looks and sounds delicious…especially the hot sauce :-)

  3. I made this over the holidays and mine was pretty bland, but I felt it had potential. Think I’ll try it again with more hot sauce.

  4. Oh wow, I have never heard of Buffalo Chex Mix, but I love the idea! This sounds and looks delicious!

  5. Yummy! What a fun chex mix recipe! I could have used it this year when I made chex mix and overdid it on the red pepper flakes and other peppers. It was soooo spicy!
