Taco Bacon Cheesy Crunch Mix

Every year for the Super Bowl when I was growing up, my Dad made something called "Quarterback Scramble" from a Chex recipe in the newspaper. This is my version of that.

I swear, this is like crunchy crack.  I cannot get enough of it, even though I know it's not exactly the healthiest snack in the world.  But, it's not uncommon for me to eat it in lieu of a meal so that balances it out, right?  Right?? :)

This is one of those recipes that calls for butter and you need to use real, actual butter and not some sort of butter substitute as it will end up with a weird soggy texture. 

*IF* you are able to do portion-control-thing, a 1/2-cup serving has about 200 delicious, totally-worth-it calories. :)

Quarterback Scramble has Wheat Chex, Corn Chex, butter, packaged taco seasoning, beer nuts, beef jerky, and American cheese. Mine uses Rice Chex, Corn Chex, butter, homemade taco seasoning, peanuts, bacon and Cheddar. Not completely different but just as addicting!

Got something to say? Then I wanna hear it! But if it's mean or an ad that doesn't fit with my blog theme, it may not stay for long. Just sayin'. :) And sorry about the word verification. I'm just tired of spambots invading my happy place. :P
