Simply Thursday...

I had some of these yesterday and they are good. So I did a recipe search...

Hot Crackers

Use a glass pickle jar to mix crackers and the seasonings and roll the jar on its side. You can use a Ziploc bag, just be careful not to break the crackers.


1 ¼ cups of canola oil

1 ( 1 ounce) package of dry ranch flavored dressing mix

2 Tablespoons of red pepper flakes

1 16 ounce box of saltine crackers

Use a large Ziploc storage bag. I use the 2 gallon size. Add the oil, ranch dressing mix, red pepper flakes and crackers. Tumble constantly for 15 minutes. If you have small kids or don’t like it too hot, only use 1 TBS of the red pepper flakes. These crackers are great with cheese balls or your favorite dip or all alone. Just make sure you have something cool to drink, because they’re spicy.


Here's what I'd do. You would first think, that's a lot of oil. But if you use the entire box of crackers, its not. So you must adjust the oil and seasonings to the crackers.

I don't need a whole box of hot crackers sitting around the house. My tummy and tush would not like that at all.

So I would use maybe a hair over a 1/4 cup of oil to a sleeve of crackers. Also, since I like garlic, I would add some garlic powder or Italian seasoning as well.

And lastly, I would bake them in the oven at 250 for...15 to 20 minutes.

That's just me. But these bad boys are good, and worthy of trying if you like hot stuff.
