Jeanne's Fire Crackers

Jeanne Benavidez


I liked the original recipe for the Fire Crackers but I wanted a little more "kick" to mine. I added the flavors that I use on some of my other snack mixes and it turned out great. After they are ready, I put them in snack bags and give them as small treats to friends.

  • 2 box
    mini saltine crackers
  • 1 pkg
    dry ranch dressing mix
  • 1 c
    canola oil
  • 2 Tbsp
    red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tbsp
    creole seasoning
  • 1 tsp
    cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp
    garlic powder

How to Make Jeanne's Fire Crackers


  1. Into a gallon zip lock bag, put everything except the crackers. (The pepper flakes will stick to the side of the zip lock bag, so you may want to add a little more than what you think you need.)
  2. Zip the bag and mix the ingredients with your hands by squeezing the bag a few times.
  3. Add both boxes of saltines. Zip and toss gently to coat evenly.
  4. Every 15 minutes or so, toss bag gently for the next hour or until crackers are coated.
  5. Let set several hours or overnight. You may put into another zip bag or other airtight container.
