Crack-a-licious Crackers

These crackers will change your life.

No, I’m not joking. They really will. These were originally titled, “Crack-tastic Crackers” which is incredibly fitting but for whatever reason I kept calling them crack-a-licious so I figured I’d mix it up a bit.

A few weeks ago I shared my Baked Potato Dip that is also dubbed “Crack Dip” on Plain Chicken so it only seemed natural to share these with you as well. Maybe now I’ll make her “Crack Bread” too.

They’re salty. They’re ranchy. They’re spicy. They’re everything you’ve ever needed all rolled up into a cracker! And not just any cracker. A saltine! They’re none to be the most basic (and boring) of crackers! Not any more folks, not any more.

My roommate and I had to make ourselves stop eating these because they really are addictive. I brought the full box to work to have as a snack and had already broken into them by like 10:30 this morning…whoops.

Have I mentioned how easy they are? Ridiculously easy. I’ve always been a fan of the many different flavors of cheez-its but these will definitely replace those.

Crack-a-licious Crackers
Heavily adapted from Sweet Teeth

  • 1 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 packet Ranch dressing mix
  • 3 tablespoons of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 box Saltine crackers

Preheat oven to 250.

Add the 4 sleeves of crackers into a large mixing bowl.

Add oil, powdered Ranch mix and red pepper flakes and stir so that each cracker is well coated and let sit for 5 minutes to fully soak up the oil mixture. I used a rubber spatual to mix so that the crackers were less likely to break.

Lay them out on an aluminum foil lined cookie sheet and drizzle the additional oil mixture over the crackers.

Bake for 10 minutes and stir crackers around half way through.

Let cool and store in an air tight container.

**Note: You can adjust the crushed red pepper to taste if you can’t handle as much heat.

I promise you will not regret making these. I think I’m going to make it a rule to always have these in the house for a snack. Tyler thought they were too spicy. Guess that means more for me! πŸ˜€

Now, time to watch a bit of TV and get to bed early. A certain four-legged friend decided to wake me up multiple times last night during the 3 o’clock hour so I am pooped!

Goodnight y’all! πŸ™‚

  1. I really enjoy crackers, I’ve made several recipes from scratch but it would be nice to follow your recipe and I have the same problem, my dog always wakes me up in the morning

  2. I made these last night and ate about 2/3 of them. I actually halved the recipe but that is still a lot of crackers. They were delish! James thought they were too hot, too. I was a little heavier-handed with the red pepper flakes than I meant to be. Whoops, I thought they were great and super easy!
