Expert Tips

  • Use 2 tablespoons lime juice for the tequila for a family-favorite snack mix.
  • Serve this zesty snack mix in a margarita glass with a salted rim. Rub the rim of the glass with the cut side of a lime or lemon wedge, then dip the rim into a shallow dish of coarse salt.
  • You can use 9 cups of Corn Chex or Rice Chex instead of a combination of the three cereals.
