Just a quick post to share with you a fast and easy snack recipe that I think you will enjoy.  I love snacks that are salty - given a choice, I will choose something salty over  a sweet snack any day.  These yummy crackers definitely satisfy my salt cravings! 


What you need: 
1 box of Saltine crackers
1 cup of oil
1 package of Italian dressing mix
1 package of Ranch dressing mix
2 tablespoons crushed red pepper flakes
Tony Chachere's Seasoning (to taste)
Large plastic container with a lid. 

Mix together the oil, dressing mixes, red pepper flakes, and Tony's.  Place the crackers (all four sleeves) in an extra large plastic container and coat with the oil mixture.  Stir to make sure the oil mixture is evenly distributed.  Cover.  Stir the crackers every fifteen minutes for an hour.  That's it!  No cooking required! 

These are crispy, spicy and salty!  They store well and will stay fresh for several days.  They may last longer but they usually disappear very quickly at our house!
Simple ingredients - I usually have these items on hand in my pantry.

Mix the oil, dressing mixes, and spices.

Wisk together.

Pour the oil mixture over the crackers.

Stir every 15 minutes for an hour. 

You will love these yummy crackers!  How about making some for your Super Bowl Party? Or to serve with your next pot of chili?  Delicious!
