We’ve been eating a lot of soups, stews and chilies in our house this winter, so I’ve been buying a lot of crackers to go alongside our favor cold-weather comfort meals.
Brookshire’s Saltine Crackers are light and crispy. They have the perfect amount of salty goodness to accompany your favorite soup or stew, as well as a satisfying crunch that is perfect while you sip soup. You can also use them to make a great snack.
With the Big Game coming up, these Firecracker Crackers would make a great appetizer, snack or side dish for your family and friends.
1 cup canola oil
1 (1 oz) pkg dry ranch dressing mix
2 Tbs crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb Brookshire’s Saltine Crackers (4 sleeves)
In a small bowl, mix canola oil, ranch dressing mix, red pepper flakes and garlic powder. Whisk well to combine.
Line crackers end to end in an airtight container. (Using a large, plastic, zip-top bag also works; just take care not to crush the crackers when you mix them.) Stir oil mixture well to make sure all the seasonings are incorporated; drizzle over crackers.
Close the lid to the container (or seal the bag), and flip gently every 5 minutes for 20 minutes in order to get all of the crackers coated with the oil mixture. Store in an airtight container or zip-top bag.
Chef’s Tip: You can adjust the amount of crushed red pepper, depending on how spicy you’d like your Firecracker Crackers to turn out.
