  • 1 ½ c mixed nuts (use lightly salted or unsalted if preferred)
  • 2  T Wild Al’s Basic Rub
  1.  Preheat oven to 250˚
  2. Place cereal, pretzels, and nuts in large mixing bowl.  Add butter, then rub.  Mix thoroughly.
  3. Spread mix out on a cookie sheet.  Bake for 45-60 minutes, stirring every 15 minutes
  4. Spread out on a paper towel and cool for at least 15 minutes before enjoying

 Like it really hot??  Try Wild Al’s Island Rub instead of the Basic Rub.  You may need to adjust the amount of rub to your taste.

Cream Cheese Dip (Basic Rub)

      (Recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, etc.)

  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature/softened
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp Wild Al's Basic Rub (more rub will get you more flavor & some heat)
  • Optional add ins (whatever floats your boat): 
            chopped onion
            diced deli meat 
            chopped nuts
  1. Combine all in a medium sized bowl. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour prior to serving.
  2. You can plop it in a bowl to serve it OR
  3. Line a small bowl with plastic wrap. Place dip in bowl, pressing into bottom with medium pressure, making sure the top of the dip is level. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours before transferring to plate for serving.  To serve: invert a plate over the bowl. Holding it carefully and tightly together, turn the plate and bowl over in one smooth motion. When the dip is resting on the plate, carefully remove the bowl. Next, gently pull back the plastic wrap.  Garnish however you want.
  4. Serve with pretzels, crackers, veggies, etc.
