The classic flavor of tacos in an easy and delicious Taco Snack Mix!Anybody else love a good snack mix? I sure do! I saw these fun football shaped pretzels at the store and just knew I had to use them in some kind of snack mix. I decided to go with popcorn instead of cereal, and I have to say, it was a pretty tasty decision!
This easy Taco Snack Mix is a hit with everyone!This taco snack mix is ridiculously easy to make– it’s ready in about five minutes.  Just pop some popcorn, toss in a few ingredients, and you’re done. (Make sure you remove the unpopped kernels!)

This stuff is mighty tasty, especially if you love tacos like my family does!
This quick and easy Popcorn Snack Mix is flavored with taco seasoning. So yummy!The cheddar cheese is optional. I liked it, but some of my kids thought it was weird to have cheese in their popcorn. I will say that if you aren’t going to be eating it right away, it’s probably best to omit the cheese.

You don’t want it sitting out at room temperature for hours on end. And you definitely don’t want to have to refrigerate your snack mix. That’s just crazy. 😉
