Chexicago Party Mix

A friend of mine made this Chexicago Party Mix for a holiday open house one year. I could not stop eating it! I like the Original Chex Party Mix, but I think I like this even better! It’s called Chexicago Party Mix because it’s inspired by the sweet-and-salty caramel and cheese popcorn combination that’s popular in Chicago. I started mixing up my popcorn that way about ten years ago, and had no idea it was a favorite Chicago treat! I really like the sweet and salty (and cheesy) combination of flavors, so I have to say that I think Chicagoans have great taste when it comes to snacks! 🙂

Dilly Pretzels and Veggie Dip

Dilly Pretzels and Veggie Dip @ NancyC

If you’re looking for a new snack to try, these Dilly Pretzels and Veggie Dip recipes are just the thing! They’re both so easy to make—the pretzels are coated with a mix of herbs, seasonings, and Ranch dressing mix (how could that not be good?!)—and the dip is a savory mix of mayo, sour cream, herbs, and dried onion flakes. The pretzels are great on their own, but if you love dips (which I do), they’re really good with this veggie dip! You can also serve the dip with fresh veggies or potato chips, so it’s pretty versatile!

I’ve seen lots of variations on this dip and decided to come up with my own version. Continue reading

Sweet and Sassy Chili

Chili makes the perfect meal during the cold-weather seasons. And it’s an easy menu item for game day parties or tailgating. After all, who doesn’t love chili? This Sweet & Sassy Chili has a mildly spicy flavor, but it also has a little sweetness too, with a touch of brown sugar mixed in. And it tastes great with some diced peached on top! Of course, you’ll still want to top your chili with some sour cream, corn chips, and cheddar cheese, but the addition of those diced peaches give the chili a great sweet-and-salty flavor!
