FIRE Crackers


1 box Nabisco saltines
1 3/4 c. canola oil (next time I'm trying 1 2/3 c.)
1 pkg. dry ranch salad dressing mix
1 T. red pepper flakes
also need a 1 gallon freezer, ziplock baggie

1. Snip off the ends of the 4 packs of saltines. Place opened ends of saltines into a 1 gallon size freezer/heavy weight ziplock baggie then slip off the cracker "sleeve" leaving saltines neatly in baggie.
2. Mix together oil, dressing mix and pepper flakes.
3. Mix very well and pour over the saltines-keeping baggie upright.
4. Seal baggie and rotate many times to distribute oil mixture throughout saltines.
5. Rotate occasionally for the next 24 hours. Then enjoy.

That's all there is to it. These are just great with salads. And yes, they are crunchie, not soggy from all that oil!!! Amazing isn't it.

Mine were a bit on the "warm" side since I used crushed chilies. I think the red pepper flakes are a bit milder. For milder version, just use 1 t. instead of 1 T.

You can do this with plain oyster crackers too for a snack mix!
