Flipped Chili-lime Snack Mix

Since posting my Flipped Seasoned Pretzels I have had so many requests for another healthy, low-point snack that I had to flip this one for you!

A handful of my Flipped Chili-lime Snack Mix is layered with a variety of crunchy flavors—minus a few things from the original recipe—like a stick of butter!  It's super easy to make:

I started with two bags of Gourmet Blend Chex Mix (featured in the Flip2Tasty Store) and kicked it up with my Homemade Chili Seasoning Blend.  For those of you interested, I hear my chili blend recently won first place in a chili cook-off and was voted Children's favorite.  Pretty neat, huh?


My Flipped Chili-lime Snack Mix proves that something healthy can still taste great! Give it try and be sure to let me know what you think.  As always, enjoy.

  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Salt
