Pecan Potpourri

(Recipe from a customer in Rockdale, Texas)


Column I

1 C. margarine

1/4 C. bacon grease

1 Tbsp. Accent

1 Tbsp. chili powder

1 Tbsp. garlic salt

1 Tbsp. onion powder

¼ to ½ tsp. red pepper

4 to 5 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

2 C. whole pecans

Column II

Small bag Fritos

2 C. Rice Chex

2 C. Wheat Chex

2 C. Corn Chex

2 C. Cherrios

1 large can shoestring potatoes

1 jar salted peanuts

1/2 bag pretzels

Melt margarine and bacon grease. Add ingredients in Column I together in pan. Put ingredients of Column II in large roasting pan. Mix gently. Drizzle Column I over Column II, mixing to cover well. Put in oven on 225 to 250 degrees, bake for 1½ hours, stirring every 15 minutes. Original recipe called for 1 Tbsp. red pepper. It’s too hot, but you may like it that way.

It’s really a good recipe. Excellent to give as Christmas gifts.
