9 cups Chex, half rice, half corn
4 cups Pepper Jack Cheez-its
2 cups pretzels
2 cups rye chips (like Gardetto’s)
3 cups peanuts, almonds, or mixed Nuts
2 sticks butter
1 ½ tbsp Reaper powder (you can use more or less depending on heat tolerance. This is HOT!)

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp salt
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.
Take 2 roasting pans and add a stick of butter to each. Place in the oven until melted.
Remove pan from the oven. Rotate the baking sheet to spread butter evenly around it.
Distribute the sauce ingredients evenly onto each sheet and mix to combine.
Evenly distribute the dry ingredients into each roasting pan and mix carefully until evenly coated with sauce ingredients.
Put the pans back in the oven for 1 hour, removing pans to stir every 15 minutes.
Cool on a cookie sheet or parchment paper before storing in an airtight container.
