"Piehole" in Midwestern means "mouth," as in "Shut your piehole." Preferably we shut it on some tasty home cooking. We love to grow, market, buy, cook, bake and grill so we can feed our faces, chow down, pig out, scarf & whatnot. I'm a born Midwestern home cook posting foods and recipes that show up in front of me, because like all Midwesterners I eat what's put in front of me. Pull up a chair. What can I get you?

The Most Addictive Snack Mix - Party Mix Recipe: "Texas Trash"

My neighbor gave me a pound of this for Christmas and I couldn't stop eating it and begged for the recipe. It's from Cooks.com with a few tweaks (like using only one stick of butter, not two), and makes 3 one-pound bags of awesome.

Spicy Snack Mix Called "Texas Trash"

2 c. Rice Chex
2 c. Corn Chex
2 c. Wheat Chex
2 c. Cheerios
2 c. Snyders Lattice Pretzels
1 c. Cheezits
1 lb. Mixed Nuts
2 c. Fritos corn chips
2 c. pecan halves
1 stick butter or margarine
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 Tbsp. seasoning salt (or to taste)
4 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce (or to taste)
cayenne pepper, to your desired heat level (1 level teaspoon gives it medium heat)
Mix all cereal, nuts and chips in a large foil pan. Melt butter in a small saucepan and add seasonings, except use only half the salt (you can put in more later, to taste).

Pour seasoning mixture over the dry mixture a little at a time and stir in between, until all of the dry mixture is coated fairly evenly. Taste and adjust salt.

Put pan in a 250°F oven stirring every 15 minutes for 2 hours. Spread entire pan over 6-9 paper towels and if desired sprinkle more cayenne pepper to your personal heat level (a little goes a long way) and let cool completely. Store in ziplock bags.
