Ingredients

9

2
cups pretzels
1

1
cup tortilla strips* (or crushed tortilla chips)
1/4
cup butter, melted
3
tablespoons tequila

tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1
tablespoon lime juice

teaspoon garlic powder
zest of 1 lime

Steps

  • 1 In large microwavable bowl, combine Chex™, pretzels, peanuts, and tortilla strips; set aside.

Expert Tips

*Tortilla strips can usually be found in grocery stores near the salad dressings.

To make this recipe in the microwave, combine all of the ingredients as directed above. Then instead of microwaving the Chex™ mix, spread it out in an even layer on a large parchment-covered baking sheet. Bake at 250°F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, and sprinkle with the fresh lime zest. Store in airtight container.
