My recipe of the day is for spicy jalapeno pretzel  mix with the blogging group “From Our Dinner Table”. We meet on Sundays to post on a variety of topics and todays is all about pretzels.

Spicy Jalapeno Pretzel Mix

This is a recipe that came about sort of by accident. I had been out shopping when I came across a really great sale on small bags of pretzel chunks. Bill and I decided to grab some of those and they had several flavors, the ones we  chose being jalapeno and also  buffalo.  The buffalo was alright but we both really liked the jalapeno. Of course as luck would have it,  when  I went back, they were sold out of jalapeno with a huge  supply of buffalo still  sitting there.

And in the grand tradition of  “If you want something  done, you’ll probably have to do it yourself”,   I  did just that. I’ve made snack mixes before so it wasn’t a problem. I also added some dry  jalapeno chips to give it variety (the way I might add nuts to a chex mix) but those really aren’t even necessary,  especially if you cannot find them. One of the conundrums  I have as a blogger is wondering  if people can get the things I buy as ingredients. I am full aware of the global nature of you guys and do try my best. If ever you cannot find something, just ask me about it and I might have ideas for you.

But anyway, this is the second offering I have for Oktoberfest, and I will be trying  to post at least a few. This one, of course,  is for #snacksaturday .  Don’t you find these hashtags humorous sometimes? In a world where  a recipe can be a needle in a haystack, it can help someone find it.

  1. Jalapeno chips? I totally need to find these. I would have thought ground dried jalapenos, but those sound better. I’m a total pretzel snack mix lover. Adding this to the menu!
