Easy Patriotic Snack Mix
Do you need a crazy simple red, white and blue recipe for your 4th of July party? I have got you covered with this Easy Patriotic Snack Mix! It is almost laughable how easy it is, and some might not even consider it a ‘recipe’, but at the end of the day if you need something with a fun patriotic theme to bring last minute, this easy 4-ingredient snack mix is where it’s at. Who cares if it doesn’t require any baking?! This Patriotic Flag Parmesan Chip Dip doesn’t require any cooking either, but that doesn’t make it any less delicious. This recipe is a yummy snack that looks cute, so in my eyes it’s a win!
This Easy Patriotic Snack Mix is as simple as getting a big bowl and tossing four bags of pre-packed snacks together. You get the red stripes from the Flamin Hot Cheetos, the blue from the blue corn tortillas and the Cheetos Stars are a delicious and patriotic addition to bring it all together. You can’t have a snack mix without pretzels, so we added in some of my favorite Cheddar pretzels to round things out.
I saw a bag of the Cheetos Stars at the convenience store and picked up a bag before a softball game. They were delicious and my mind started racing on how they would be perfect in a patriotic snack mix recipe!
I remembered an easy snack mix that we enjoyed at the annual charity golf tournament a few weeks early and I was reminded that not all snack mixes needed to be baked. Sometimes just throwing together a bunch of goodness in a bowl suffices for a quick and easy fix!
The Flamin Hot Cheetos were a must, to bring in the red stripes to the mix. If your friends or family aren’t a huge fan of spicy foods, you can definitely cut back to just a half bag though, so it isn’t quite so spicy.
