My son’s first birthday is coming up and I’m really excited about it. I plan on serving a lot of finger foods/appetizers and although I have a lot of the main dishes down: chicken wings, veggies & dip and a few carby things. I want to try something different for snacks. I’m not wanting chips so that’s why I’m checking out Life Made Delicious for some easy recipes. Carter’s first birthday has a farm/barnyard theme and I’m trying to think of some creative ideas that way. Naturally I will be doing deviled eggs, pigs in a blanket and now thanks to the Taco-Seasoned Chex Mix recipe I found – Chicken Feed.

  1. Sounds good… I especially like that the cheese nips are in there, I love those little crackers and could eat a whole box!

  2. I usually buy the Chex Mix for causal limes and little get together, so I like how you put a little spin on it. Sound good enough to try. Thanks for sharing.

    You had me at “Taco seasoned”. I am a sucker for anything mexican and I happen to love Chex mix. I posted a sweet & sour one on my blog a while ago. They make for such a great snack and love that it’s gluten-free!

  10. YUM! We eat chex mix all the time over here!
