Looking for the ultimate snack recipe for your football watching party? This spicy Sriracha Chex mix recipe has just the right amount of heat! It is sure to be a game-day favorite.
Wow! It’s hard to believe, but the first month of the year is already over, and the Super Bowl is coming up this weekend! I absolutely love to munch on Chex mix while watching a big game, and I typically make two recipes, a traditional version and this kicked up a notch spicy Sriracha Chex mix version. The spicy version is always the first to go!
It’s The Perfect Football Tailgate Party Food
We live in Massachusetts, and the New England Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl again this year, so you can bet there will be lots of football parties in our area. Even though our family’s two favorite teams, the New Orleans Saints and the Greenbay Packers, aren’t playing this year, we still love to get together with friends to cheer on the game and watch some awesome commercials.

How Is This Different From The Original Chex Mix?
Have you made Chex mix before? It’s easy to do and tastes so much better than the stuff you can buy in the stores. The key is baking it in the oven. I’ve tried the microwave versions, and they just don’t come out the same.
This spicy version has just the right amount of heat. It’s not too overpowering, and the Cajun seasoning gives it just an amazing flavor. I promise if you whip up a batch of this spicy Sriracha Chex mix it will be a game day favorite!
What’s your favorite part of the Superbowl? Is it the game itself, the commercials, or the party food?
