I am going to go “play” for a few days, so last night, I made a couple of goodies for hubby to snack on while I am away. There are many variations to this recipe and I never make it the same way. I was introduced to these by my friends Shari and Shelly at our “50th” birthday bash. I’ve been hooked since! Thanks a lot, gals~
If you haven’t tried Hot Crackers….well, here’s the recipe:
and they are addictive!
One box of saltines (my variation on this? Whatever other crackers I may have in the pantry that day! Cheez-its, rye, pretzel chips and almonds made the cut today. Of course, when I add other crackers, I only use half of the saltines)
2 packages of dry ranch dressing mix Use whatever variety sounds good to you. Today I am using original.
Red crushed pepper The hotter the better…that’s our taste. So if you cannot handle the heat, just use a teaspoon or so.
I use six Pizza Hut packages!
3/4 cup canola oil
Mix together dressing mix, pepper and canola oil. Place crackers in very large bowl. Pour “mix” over crackers. I use a wooden spoon and carefully turn the mixture. You don’t want to crush the crackers. After that, seal bowl with a lid or foil and toss lightly, mixing. Do this every so often until the mixture has absorbed. I think they are best the next day, but a few hours will do it if need be. I store them in a couple of storage bags. They are too delicious not to share!
I also made tabouli tonight, but I will share that one another day~
Hope you enjoy! I’ll see ya in a few days! Have a great Monday and be nice to people! Even if they run over your mailbox! ♥
