3 cups Corn Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Wheat Chex
1 cup mixed nuts
1 cup cashews
1 cup miniature pretzels
1 cup sesame sticks (the ones you get in bulk food bins that are usually an ingredient in Cajun snack mixes)
1 cup goldfish crackers
1 cup garlic flavored bagel chips
3/4 cup butter
4 T Worcestershire sauce
3 tsp seasoned salt
1-1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
2 T lemon juice
1/8 cup Tabasco sauce

Combine all of the dry ingredients (except for the powdered spices) in a large bowl, and give it a good stir. Nuke the butter until it's melted, and add the Worcestershire sauce, Tabasco, and lemon juice. Stir. Now, the recipe on the side of the Chex cereal box will tell you to throw the spices in with the liquid ingredients. Don't do it! The spices will only settle to the bottom of the bowl and it will mess with the consistency of the seasoning. Instead, combine and mix the spice ingredients in a separate bowl. While stirring the liquid mixture, pour it over the Chex Mix. Then, while stirring the spice mixture, sprinkle IT over the Chex Mix. Stir well, then cook in a 350 oven for 45 minutes, stirring at 15 minute intervals. Let it cool, then chow down!

Personal Notes:
This is a variation of the recipe you'll find on the back or side of any box of Chex cereal. It's unhealthy, but very spicy and tasty. Gotta admit, it turns out different every time I make it, due to my mood and whatever resources I have on hand. The point of it is...the traditional Chex Mix is simply not bold or spicy enough. Adding extra Worcestershire sauce never hurts, and adding extra spices like garlic, onion, and red peppers is a great way to kick it up a couple of notches.
