Texas Trash

Texas Trash

3/4 stick, (6 Tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce
2 Tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon oregano, crumbled
2 cup regular size Fritos corn chips
2 cup Crispix cereal
2 cup Ritz Bits mini cheese crackers
2 cup Corn Nuts
1 1/2 cup fish shaped pretzel crackers
1 cup roasted pumpkin seeds
1 cup roasted hulled peanuts
2/3 cup shelled sunflower seeds

Position a rack in the middle of the oven and pre-heat the oven to 250ºF. In a shallow 3 quart baking dish, melt together the butter, hot pepper sauce, Worchestershire sauce, chili powder and oregano.

In a large bowl stir together everything else. Add the Frito mixture to the melted butter mixture and toss to coat and put in a baking dish. Return the dish to the oven and bake stirring every 10 minutes for 1 hour. The Trash should be dry, lose and lightly browned.

Transfer to a storage container, cool and cover tightly. Store at room temperature. The texture and flavor of the Texas Trash will be at their best when it is consumed within 48 hours.
