This hot and spicy version starts with a layer of refried beans, then some meat flavored with taco seasoning and then some cheese. Pop that in to the oven to melt the cheese. Then add hot and spicy Chex Mix and top with lettuce, tomato, and onion. Carrot chips go great with this dip. They maybe mini, but they're big on flavor. Mix up some mini cheese balls by mixing cream cheese with some shredded cheddar cheese and a little butter. Chill that, then shape into little balls. You can roll them in your favorite ground nuts or you could crush up some of that Chex Mix. For a sweet treat, try this twist on everyone's favorite bars. Use Chex Mix Turtle instead of rice cereal. Mix it with molten marshmallows and butter and then just shape it into balls or press it in to a mold. This gets pretty sticky. Add a popsicle stick and let them cool to harden. All these treats are fast and easy which means you can get in on the game day fun too.
