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! ♥
Curious to try these out – what consistency do they have?
A crunchy dry cracker with some spice kick 🙂
Just what we wanted to hear!
🙂 Adjust to your liking!
This reminds me of Texas Trash, aka Reindeer food – an assortment of cereals and nuts.
I am working on creating Mexican Trash, but maybe i should call it Mexican Trail Mix, — the trash part doesnt sound too tasty. lol ;)…
AND i do love your cracker medley…will make some to share with my grandbebe …thank you bunches!
I love your names! Sounds yummy to me! 🙂
The crackers don’t get soggy?
The do not get soggy as long as you toss them well! Crunchy and yum. 🙂
I love these – they are awesome and addictive.
too addictive! 🙂
These sound just wonderful! I’d rather have a spicy, salty snack than candy or cake, so this is made for me! Enjoy your time away, too. 🙂
I love BOTH…sweets…salts…I guess I simply love to snack! Thanks!
I am a total wuss..so can I just leave out the hot pepper altogether?? But then, I suppose they wouldn’t be HOT crackers, would they?? 🙂 Hope you had a fun time playing!
How can that be?!?!?! Changing the recipe for you. Open a box of crackers. Eat. 🙂 Yep….having fun at my folks.
Haha…so funny! I know, total wuss. It’s ok, I am secure in my wussy self! 🙂
🙂 It’s all good. Weird….but good. 🙂 ♥
Weird that I am a wuss? Why is that weird?? 😀
We are at HOT family! haha….
