This is a repeat post from last year, in case you don't remember it.
My niece requested that I make some of these for our family get-together this weekend, so I figured they must be pretty good! I like 'em, myself! But then, several things I like are not real popular with other folks.
The beauty of these snacks is that they are easy to fix and CHEAP! I like cheap!
Heck, these are certainly cheaper than making home made cookies! Believe me, I know!
Things You'll Need:
* 1 box of saltine crackers
* 1 envelope of BUTTERMILK Ranch Dressing Mix (powder)
* 1 1/3 c. canola oil
* 1 Tblsp. crushed red pepper flakes
* Gallon size Ziploc bag
Empty all 4 sleeves of crackers into the Ziploc bag, being careful not to break or crush the crackers. If many of the crackers are broken, you may want to remove the smaller pieces.
In a 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, pour the 1 1/3 c. canola oil (healthier and absorbs quickly into crackers). Whisk in the dressing mix and the crushed red pepper flakes. Mix well. Pour over the crackers in the bag. Seal the bag tightly so oil will not leak out while you toss the bag to coat the crackers with the seasoning mixture.
Turn the bag every 10 min. for one hour; this helps coat the crackers evenly. You may store these in the Ziploc bag or any airtight container.
* May use Ritz crackers as well.
* Great for the holidays.
* Wonderful for just snacking -- just the right amount of salt and spice.
* May add extra crushed red pepper if you really like it HOT!!!
I really am not looking forward to this gathering this year, but for Mom's sake, I'll make the best of it. Seems like the least I can do, ya know?
Anyway, I hope you try and enjoy this snack. Goes over pretty good for something that doesn't take a lot of time! That's a good thing!
Coffee on the patio this morning if it doesn't rain. Don't worry, though, the kitchen isn't far away!
