These crackers are delicious and they go especially well with a dip that I will post tomorrow. You can adjust the spiciness by adding more or less crushed red pepper.
They sure don't look very pretty, but they are yummy to your tummy.
Here's the recipe:
Spicy Saltine Crackers
1 lb original saltine crackers (I used a box of Kroger brand cuz I'm cheap like that)
1 1/3 cup canola oil
2 or 3 Tablespoons crushed red pepper
1 envelope ranch dressing mix (1.0 ounce)
2 gallon-sized resealable bags
Mix oil, red pepper and ranch dressing mix in a small bowl or measuring cup or however you want to mix it. I just pour the oil in a 2-cup measuring cup and then pour in the pepper and the dressing mix packet. Mix all that up.
Pour two sleeves of crackers in one resealable bag and then the other two sleeves of crackers in the other resealable bag. Pour half the mixture over the crackers in one bag and then the other half of the mixture over the other crackers. It will look like a lot of oil and you might think there's no way the crackers will soak up this oil and not be soggy, but you'll be in for a surprise. Let them sit a while. If we're having a get-together, I usually like to make these the day before just to make sure everything is soaked up like it should be.
Be prepared to get asked for this recipe!
