Everyone loves to munch on a salty snack while watching football. This snack couldn’t be easier, and it will last you through the holiday season. Make up a big batch to store in your freezer for your upcoming tailgate, Halloween party, or Christmas gathering.

Tailgate Snack Mix

Why bring bags of chips to a tailgate when you can bring a snack mix that will score big brownie points with football fans?

- 1 (16 oz) bottle butter flavored popcorn oil

- 1 tablespoon garlic powder

- 1/2 tablespoon onion powder

- 1/2 tablespoon onion salt

- 2 bags Munchies snack mix

- 1 bag Bugles corn snacks

- 1 box Chicken in a Biskit crackers

- 1 box Club mini crackers

- 1 bag goldfish crackers

Double or triple layer brown paper bags. Add all crackers and snacks to bag.

Add garlic powder, onion powder and onion salt to bottle of popcorn oil. Replace lid and shake very well until dissolved. Pour half of the bottle of oil into bag. Shake bag to coat crackers. Add remaining oil. Shake again. Do not shake too hard to avoid breaking crackers. Roll down top of paper bag. Place paper bag in a tall kitchen bag. Allow snack mix to sit overnight. The next day, shake crackers one more time. Use a large measuring cup to transfer snack mix to gallon-sized resealable bags. It will fill about 3 bags.

Store crackers at room temperature or store in freezer for up to 3 months.

Note: Any sort of cracker, snack or chip can be added. Five to six bags or boxes is the perfect amount. Other snack ideas are cheese curls, cheese crackers, peanuts, wheat crackers, and corn or rice cereal.
