Fire Crackers

Carol Perricone


I am so tired of store bought crackers, that I started looking for new ideas. I came across this recipe to "doctor" up saltines on I changed it a little, and now I have the perfect cracker to serve with cheese and pepperoni. Goes well with dips, also. Enjoy!!

Continue to stir to prevent the pepper from settling to the bottom of the bowl.
