    If you think there is only one type of Chex mix, you are so very wrong. Here are our top 10 fave Chex Mix recipes:

    1. Lemonade Chex Mix

    2. Sriracha Chex Mix

    This nutty, Asian party mix complements the flavors of this recipe quite nicely. Hot sriracha – which is a type of hot sauce – is mellowed out a bit by butter, garlic, ginger and soy. Also, this one has crunchy chow mein noodles, peanuts and wasabi peas, which make it a hearty mix.

    6. Deviled Chex Mix

    Spice-haters need not apply here. This recipe is laced with paprika, chili powder, cumin, coriander and pepper for a mix that's anything but bo-ring. Plus, it's much better suited for a party than deviled eggs, 'cause it won't get all smelly and gross after 30 minutes.

    7. Salt and Vinegar Chex Mix
