I thought for sure this recipe would include jean cut-offs.
Actually, I know it’s not even much of a recipe; I had just never heard that Chex Mix is called Texas Trash in some parts of the country. Apparently Texans take some kind of pride in this? I don’t generally think being associated with trash is a plus, so I’d assume it started in Oklahoma? I’m not sure.
Anyhow, a slightly more complete recipe follows.
From a box sold in San Antonio, Texas.
Texas Trash (I guess)
2 cups Corn Chex
2 cups Wheat Chex
2 cups Rice Chex
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup pretzel sticks
1 stick of butter (or, to be true to the original, 1/2 stick butter and 1/2 stick more butter)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire
1 tablespoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
- Preheat oven to 250F.
- Melt butter. Mix butter, Worcestershire, Tabasco, garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoned salt together.
- Mix all Chex, nuts, and pretzels into a bowl.
- Pour butter mixture over cereal mixture, stirring to evenly coat cereal mixture.
- Bake for 1 to 1.5 hours, stirring every 15 minutes, or until dry.
