Ingredients
  • ½ cup butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • 2 cups mini wheat thin crackers
  • 2 cups peanuts
  • 2 cups mini pretzels
  • 4 cups plain popcorn

  • Cajun Seasoning:
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat air fryer to 370ºF.
  2. Combine the melted butter and Cajun spice in a small bowl.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the crackers, peanuts, pretzels, and popcorn. Pour the butter over the mixed snacks and toss evenly to coat the mixture.
  4. Air-fry the snack mix two batches. Place half of the snack mix in the air fryer basket and air-fry for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly toasted. Toss the basket several times throughout the process for even cooking.
  5. Transfer the snack mix to a cookie sheet and cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week, or place in gift bags with tags and ribbons for gift giving.
