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!!

1 c

(1 ounce) packet ranch dressing mix
2 Tbsp
crushed red pepper flakes (i used 1 tsp.) or to taste

How to Make Fire Crackers


  • 1Line crackers on ends (like dominoes) in an air-tight container.
  • 2In a small bowl, mix oil, dressing mix, red pepper, and garlic powder.
  • 3Stir until all ingredients are well mixed.

    Continue to stir to prevent the pepper from settling to the bottom of the bowl.
  • 4Spoon mixture evenly over crackers, like drizzling icing on a cake.
  • 5Close lid tightly and flip the container over every 5 minutes for about 20 minutes. Lightly shake back and forth to make sure all the crackers are coated.
  • 6Store in a ziplock bag. Will keep for about a week - if they last that long.
