Last week, an occasion arose for me to take a Gluten Free “munchie” to a holiday party. What fun! As I glanced through my pantry, my eyes fell upon a large box of Corn and Rice Chex cereal from Costco marked Gluten Free. Well… my mouth began to water for an ole’ favorite, Chex Party Mix. I thought, “Why not?”

Obviously, I could use only the Rice and Corn CHEX cereals, both naturally Gluten Free, and I left out the pretzels. Thankfully, I always have Gluten Free Worcestershire Sauce in my refrigerator. The other traditional ingredient that needed a substitute was the “Seasoning Salt”. With a little experimentation, I arrived at the following recipe and it was enjoyed by all, those who delight in only eating Gluten Free and those who are not limited thusly.

Gluten Free CHEX Party MixChex Party Mix - Gluten Free

Toss the above mixture with:
1 Cup Salted Cashews
2 Cups Corn CHEX
2 Cups Rice CHEX

Double or triple this basic recipe based on the number of anticipated guests.

This mix has become a traditional “comfort food” enjoyed by many not only through the Holidays, but any time of year.   Enjoy!!!
