Roasted Ranch Red Pepper Crackers (aka Fire Crackers!)

I found this recipe about a year ago on a blog called Pearls, Handcuffs, and Happy Hour. I modified it slightly and they are absolutely delicious. They are spicy (due to the red pepper flakes) but you can adjust the spiciness to your desired level by altering how many red pepper flakes you add. It is very true that you can't eat just one!

Roasted Ranch Red Pepper Crackers (Fire Crackers)

  • 1 cup of olive oil
  • 1 packet of dry ranch dressing mix
  • 2-3 tbsp of red pepper flakes
  • 1 box of whole wheat Saltine rounds (or 2-3 sleeves of regular whole wheat Saltine crackers)

  1. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. 
  2. Add the crackers to a large ziploc bag. 
  3. In a big glass measuring cup, mix the olive oil, ranch dressing packet, and red pepper flakes together with a fork. 
  4. Pour the mixture into the ziploc bag over the crackers. 
  5. Zip the bag and shake the mixture around so that the crackers are evenly coated. 
  6. Spread the crackers out over a baking sheet. 
  7. Cook for 15-20 minutes. You may want to stir halfway through that time - it helps prevent the crackers from sticking to the bottom of the sheet. 
Step 5: Covering the crackers with the olive oil mixture.
