Party Mix Con Queso

Comment on this recipe

I usually find the blue canister of Kraft cheese food in the popcorn aisle.

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter
1 package taco seasoning
7 cups Crispix cereal
2 cups small cheese crackers (Goldfish or Cheese It crackers work well)
2 cups nacho cheese tortilla chips, broken
2 tablespoons grated American cheese food

Instructions

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Melt butter in microwave and stir in taco seasoning. In a large roasting, pan mix Crispix, crackers and nacho chips. Pour butter and seasoning mix over snack mix and stir until all pieces are evenly coated. Bake 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Add grated cheese food and stir. Bake an additional 15 mintues. Spread on absorbent paper to cool. Store in an airtight container, that is if you have any left.
