Does anyone remember those firecracker saltines? I love those. I didn't have any crackers on hand, but as luck would have it - my garden is exploding with Swiss Chard again this year. So I figure if you can make baked kale chips - why not Swiss Chard?

I combine the two and what a great combination! The Swiss Chard has a great flavor baked and when combined with the spicy ranch flavor it's a snack that will be a keeper!
