2 cups roasted unsalted peanuts
2 cups thin pretzels
1 1/2 cups crispy corn cereal squares
1 cup pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons tamari or other soy sauce
1 tablespoon chili powder or to taste
1 teaspoon garlic salt, or to taste

1. In a large bowl, combine the corn chips, peanuts, pretzels, cereal, and pumpkin seeds

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the oil, brown sugar, tamari, chili powder, and garlic salt. Pour the wet mixture over the dry mixture over the dry mixture, stirring gently to coat evenly.

3. Transfer the mixture to a 3 1/2 to 4-quart slow cooker and cook, uncovered, on Low, stirring occasionally, for 3 hours.

Sorry it took me an extra day to get this posted. Santa gave me the flu for X-Mas so I've been down and out for the past few days.

But seeing that it's the week of New Year's, how about appetizers?

I'm going to have to go look some up that I have. Post away!
