Do you remember when you could not buy Chex Mix in the grocery store? It is so much cheaper to make it yourself especially when you use store brands for the ingredients. This one is a little more expensive due to the smoked almonds but any nut will do.

2 1/2 cups mini cheese crackers
1 1/2 cup mini pretzels

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet foil.

Melt the butter in a microwave. Stir in the chili powder, paprika and garlic powder. Drizzle over the popcorn mixture and toss to coat; season to taste with salt.
