Spicy Chicken Scratch

Do you have guests coming to enjoy Christmas dinner with you?
Have some of this spicy mix on hand to let them munch on while the feast is getting prepared!
They will love it!
A few days ago, I gathered with friends for a fun time of catching up and great food.
This wonderful spicy snack mix was there for us to munch on.
It is basically the original Chex mix............but because of the spice added and because of my new chicken platter I serve it in.........
I dubbed it with the name
Spicy Chicken Scratch

This is what makes it so spicy. So be careful on how much you add. If you can't take a lot of heat........only add a tablespoon or two.
I added 3 tablespoons to mine and my family loves it.
It has just enough heat to make you say...........wow............YUM!!!
You can add anything you like to munch on in this recipe.
