The Fall and Christmas season always makes me think of snack mixes. Maybe it's the return of football and hockey seasons and having a fun snack on hand to enjoy the games with. The only question was whether to make it a savory or a sweet mix. This time, I went with the sweet option with a hint of cinnamon. The blue tortilla chips were a colorful addition. You can sub in regular ones but with Halloween fast approaching, I liked the color.
