Holiday Sriracha Chex Mix  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

Until I realized you don’t have to follow the recipe, I was never really the biggest fan of Chex mix.

Once I started to experiment a bit and put some different flavors and ingredients into the mix, I started to like it a lot more. And that’s how I came up with a sriracha-based Chex Mix with soy sauce, fresh ginger and garlic, and some chow mein noodles and wasabi peas mixed right in. It’s a truly addictive version of the classic!

Ingredients for Holiday Sriracha Chex Mix

Wasabi peas and chow mein noodles give the snack mix a bit more Asian flair.

Use a microplane zester

You could use garlic and ginger powders, but I prefer the kick from the real stuff. Use a microplane zester to turn it into a paste and mix it into the sauce.

Soy sauce, sriracha, butter, ginger, and garlic

Soy sauce, sriracha, butter, ginger, and garlic.

Then get it into the oven for about an hour at 250, stirring every 15 minutes or so. The oven method takes a bit longer than using a microwave (as some recipes specify), but I think it’s worth it.
