Thought I would let you all in on what Texas Trash is - chex party mix on steroids! lol

This is what I put in mine:

corn, rice and wheat cjex
Cheetos                                          at least 2 cups of each ingredient stir all together
wheat thins
shoestring potatoes
Snyder's jalapeno pretzel bites
corn nuts
deluxe mixed nuts (no peanuts)
extra pecans


2 blocks of butter
1/2 cup of worchestershire sauce
4 heaping TBSP Tony Chacheres Cajun seasoning

melt butter in large pan/roaster and stir in worchestershire. and Tony's till all melted together .
Add cereals etc and stir to coat all of it. If it doesn't all fit in one pan you have to cook it twice or half the recipe. It's not exact, just use what you like.
You cook in oven at 250 degrees stirring every 20 minutes
I cook mine 1 - 1 1/2 hours usually. You are really drying it out. (you can use less butter and WS if you want. This is the way my family likes it.

When done, I pour it out onto craft paper lined with newspapers and topped with paper towels to cool. Let cool completely before putting into air tight containers.
And there you have it - Texas trash.
I have to set aside a whole day for this. I make more than one batch because we have to share with family and friends.
I'm planning to make mine this weekend. I'll try to post a pic.

Thanks for reading.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
