Time to choose your team! Super Bowl is a great time to sit and eat those munchies! So here is a new way to share some new and old Chex Mix Recipes. These are great for me because I can easily make them Gluten Free and yet everyone loves them! Can’t wait for the big game, but I think I will just choose the commercials!
