  • Ready In

  1. Place the vegetable oil, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, ranch dressing mix, and crushed red pepper flakes in a 2-gallon plastic zipper bag. Seal the bag and smoosh with your hands to thoroughly combine the oil and spices. Place the crackers into the bag, seal, and turn the bag over to cover the crackers with the spice mix. Let the bag sit for about 1 hour, then turn again. Repeat several more times until the crackers are well-coated with spice mix, and allow the bag to sit overnight. Remove crackers and serve.

Best use for a saltine cracker ever! These were perfect for our chili! They are savory and have the perfect spicy kick. Yum!

Wow, I wasn't sure about this one but I thought I'd give these a try and wow am I glad. The only thing I changed was canola for vegetable. I have to admit that I cheated and ate a couple before ...
