These crackers pack a punch and were a party hit!



1 lb unsalted saltine crackers (4 sleeves)
1 cup grapeseed oil
1 (1 ounce) packet ranch dressing mix
1 1/22 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder


1. Line crackers on ends (like dominoes) in an air-tight container.

2. In a small bowl, mix oil, dressing mix, peppers, and garlic powder.

3. Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.

4. Continue to stir to prevent the pepper from settling on the bottom of the bowl.

5. Spoon mixture evenly over crackers, like drizzling icing on a cake.

6. Close lid tightly and flip the container over every 5 minutes for about 20 minutes. Lightly shake back and forth to make sure all the crackers are coated.

7. Store in a ziplock bag. Will keep for about a week — if they last that long!
