Easy to mix and easy to bring into work: Tex-Mex Trail Mix is a spiced up, calcium-filled combo of popcorn, cereal and Colby-Jack Cheese. What isn't easy is putting it down.

  • 1-1/2 cups corn or rice cereal squares
  • 1/2 cup corn nuts or soy nuts (optional)
  • Butter flavored nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 tsp. Mexican or fajita seasoning
  • 6 Sargento® Colby-Jack Cheese Snacks or Sargento® Mild Cheddar Cheese Snacks
  1. Arrange popcorn, crackers, cereal and corn nuts on a jelly roll pan. Coat with cooking spray and immediately sprinkle seasoning over mixture.
  2. Transfer to a serving bowl and toss lightly.
  3. Cut cheese snacks crosswise into thin slices; add to bowl and toss again. Serve immediately.
