Take this to snack on before dinner. And if there's any left, toss it on a salad.

Gerianne's Review

Like many, I did not find this recipe particularly spicy. However, the second time I made it, I added chipotle chili powder and a hot sauce. Instead of using a ginger stir fry sauce, I used a 'spicy' stir fry sauce. It will picked it up! It is wonderful, and something that I will make on many occasions!

Used orange-ginger stir fry sauce instead of ginger stir fry sauce. Overall, tasted good and would make again. Was told it tasted like a Mexican side dish. Mine had a very prominent chili powder taste (even though I used the proportion that the recipe called for). Would have to quadruple the recipe when entertaining.

We love the traditional chex mix, but this is just as good! For adjustments: I doubled the recipe, baked for a full hour, used Smart Balance instead of butter, we only had 1/2 of the required chili powder, subbed garlic salt for regular salt, and I only used corn chex, wheat chex and pretzel sticks. In the end, the only thing I would change is using the full amount of chili powder and a little less cumin. It's a keeper!

Threw it away, the flavours did not work together.

I doubled this recipe and substituted half of the Crispix for Shreddies (Shreddies increase the fibre considerably to make it healthier) It is the best ever! I love this and it is not bland but not spicy enough for the little ones to turn their nose up either. I will be making this again & again, cheap to make, easy and healthy while still tasting good.
