A little snack

I wanted a little snack today, and options are few.

So I threw together a spicy version of Chex Mix. Of course, I only had one kind of Chex, some Cheerios, hot sauce, chipotle jelly and seasoned salt.

It's quite yummy, believe it or not!

As near as I can remember:

2 tbsp hot sauce [your choice, I used the Louisiana brand]
3 tbsp chipotle jelly [any kind you have on hand will do really, preferrably a clear jelly, like apple or grape]
1/2 tsp seasoned salt

1 cup Chex
2 cups Cheerios
[you can also add pretzel sticks, nuts, whatever, instead of a cup of the Cheerios]
heat the first 3 ingredients together in a large pan, just until bubbles appear in the sauce. Mix in cereals, pretzels and nuts, toss to coat evenly.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.

Remove from oven, pour into a bowl that isn't going to melt.
Run and hide in your room, cos Lily likes this stuff and she WILL steal it from you.
