Since I’d seen people posting about these addictive crackers to make for holiday parties or just to have for snacking, I finally decided to try them. How could they be that good? It’s a simple recipe called “Fire Crackers”: https://www.food.com/recipe/fire-crackers-423316
You basically gently mix a few sleeves of saltine crackers with this mixture: canola oil (1 cup), a packet of ranch seasoning, 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. That’s it. Mix. Put in a container. Every few minutes, flip the container to keep coating the crackers with your mixture. They aren’t oily, really. The crackers absorb the oil and somehow crisp up with the seasonings after an hour or so.
I then stored the crackers in a zip-lock bag.
The next day, I found myself loving a cracker or two throughout the day. They were good! Spicy, salty, and everything you’d want when you need a salty snack. Do I recommend? Yes! You can also use this same recipe with oyster crackers or pretzels.
Sometimes it’s fun to try something everyone’s talking about. I think we’ll add Fire Crackers to our party spread!
