I found this recipe on Pinterest and decided it was just what our Superbowl party at church needed. But when I found MINI SALTINES at the store, I was so excited that I actually gasped out loud! You get very strange looks from the other shoppers when you gasp while grabbing a box of Saltines off the shelf… Oh, that poor pathetic woman. What must her life be like that she is so excited by salt crackers???
I’m almost 40 now and that doesn’t bother me a bit! And I used them to make some of the most scrumptious snack crackers ever… So there! :oP
Here’s the recipe for you to try:
1 cup vegetable oil
1 package ranch dressing mix
2 Tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes (you can use more or less depending on your heat tolerance)
1 box of mini saltines
Heat your oven to 250. Line a baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper.
Mix the oil, dressing mix and pepper flakes in a small bowl.
Pour over the crackers that have been placed in a large bowl. Toss well to coat. This will take a few minutes. But be careful! You don’t want a bowl full of crumbs…
Place crackers on the baking sheet and pour the extra ranchy-peppery oil over the top of the crackers.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, stirring halfway through baking.
Let cool and store in airtight bags or containers.
