chipotle lime texas trash

Another post for the Leftovers Club today! And once again, I am very thankful to have had somebody to share this stuff with because... oh my. It's way too good. Spicy, tangy, a little bit sweet. ADDICTIVE.

I made it super easy on myself by using snack mix and mixed nuts, but you could really mix and match any crunchy snacks and nuts you like for this. Because, let's be honest, pretty much anything covered in this chipotle lime butter would be delicious!

I sent a jar of this stuff to Kathia from Basic N Delicious - I hope she loved it as much as we did!

Chipotle Lime Texas Trash (adapted from Homesick Texan)
yields 8 cups

you'll need:
4 cups snack mix (I used Cheez-It Snack Mix)
4 cups mixed roasted, salted nuts
8 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup lime juice
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
pinch of cayenne
1 tablespoon lime zest

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over lowest heat. Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice, Worcestershire, brown sugar, paprika, cinnamon, chile powder, garlic, cumin, lime zest, and cayenne.

Combine the snack mix, nuts, and butter mixture in a large bowl and stir until everything is well-coated. Spread the mixture evenly over the 2 baking sheets in one layer. Bake for 40-45 minutes, rotating the sheets halfway through. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before serving.
