Texas Trash

One of my fond memories of childhood is visiting my relatives in East Texas. My aunts were all wonderful cooks and I always looked forward to their cooking. It seems like they always had a snack available which they called "Texas Trash." So recently I've searched for a recipe online and found one that sounded similar. It's like store bought Chex Mix except with lots of pecans! I don't like things to be too spicy so I usually half the hot ingredients. I started making this around Christmas time, but we liked it so much I've made it several times since.

Texas Trash

9-10 C of dry ingredients:
     1 C Cheerios cereal
     2 C each of Chex cereal (wheat, rice, corn)
     1 C pretzels or crackers
     1 C nuts

For the topping:
     1/2 C melted butter
     1/4 tsp celery salt
     1/4 tsp garlic salt
     1 tsp seasoning salt
     1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
     1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
     1 Tbsp Tabasco sauce

Combine all the dry ingredients on a large baking sheet. Pour the seasoned butter over the dry ingredients and stir until everything is coated well. 

Bake for an hour at 250 degrees, stirring every 15 minutes.
