Can I Make Buffalo Chex Mix More or Less Spicy?

Yes! You can make Buffalo Chex Mix more or less spicy, depending on your preference.

If you want more spice, add 2 more teaspoons of cajun spice. If you want less spicy, you can eliminate the cajun spice.

If you want zero spice, you can even eliminate all cajun spice and buffalo sauce. This party mix is good with just butter!
