Spicy Nacho Cheese Chex Mix

Ingredients:

1 box Chex
1/2-1 cup Earth Balance Vegan Buttery Sticks
-yeah-that’s a thing… this is 2 sticks. I usually start with 1/2 cup (which is one stick) and add more as it cooks if I feel like it’s too dry.
Spicy Taco Seasoning Mix (see below)
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 250.
2. Heat “butter” in the microwave until melted
3. Mix the Spicy Taco Seasoning Mix in with the butter
4. Pour the box of Chex into a pan and cover with the butter/seasoning mixture
5. Stir!
6. Put it in the oven. I usually set a timer and stir it every 10-15 minutes.
7. I heat it for…1 hour? I don’t know. Just usually until it’s yummiest.
