Spicy Ranch Crackers

Posted on

 

This is a twist on seasoned crackers for those that enjoy a spicy kick.  I make a triple batch of seasoned crackers every December to include in my goodie bags with assorted sweets, and this year I made a second spicy batch for those that like things on the spicy side.  They are great on their own as a snack, but as with the seasoned crackers, one of my favorite things to do with these crackers is to sprinkle them on soup as a garnish, especially tomato soup or chili.  And let’s not forget the Super Bowl is coming up, right?  These would be perfect for the heat-lovin’, snack-eatin’ guests at your party.

  3. I used to make something like this all the time. Instead of oil, I would use Orville Reddinbacher popcorn oil/butter stuff. I’d add pretzels and bugles too. So, so good!

  6. I am trying these! I make a similar one each Christmas for gifts but they just use regular saltines. I stick them in a large tupperware and turn them every hour for a while. Everyone loves them and they seem like they are baked. Everyone is surprised the aren’t. I am trying them with the spicy ranch. Just be careful… it is easy to eat a whole recipe in a few days. I just pretend they aren’t soaked in oil. lol

  8. I make ranch crackers all the time, but I use those mini cheese filled ritz bitz as the cracker, and I don’t make them spicy…but I bet spicy is a wonderful twist. Never thought of it! I think I might change it up next time I make them!! Great idea topping chili with them!

    These are like CRACK! I have a similar recipe using buttered popcorn oil – you’d think such a huge batch would last awhile, but NOPE! Gone in a flash. Pinning your version to try next time! :-)

  12. Well don’t cha ya know that make a very similar cracker? I use the plain and lowly saltine, we love that spicy salty crunch. Next time around I’ll have to try it with different crackers (cheez-its are the Baby boy’s fav).
