Fire Crackers

This is our adaptation of the traditional Firecrackers made with a packet of Ranch Dressing.
We chose to use Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dip.

We first experienced these at a family gathering in Kansas. My sister in law made them with a packet of flavoring that she purchased. Hers were very spicy and we loved them. It's the kind of snack that you can't eat just one.

We made the traditional ones and they weren't as spicy as the ones in Kansas.

I came up with this recipe and it's perfect, very spicy!
If you don't like spice then you can research the original recipe.

1 box of Saltine Crackers (you can also make this with Oyster Crackers)
1 C Canola Oil
1 packet of Hidden Valley Fiesta Ranch Dip
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
2 TBS Crushed Red Pepper Flakes ( we smashed them )
1- 2 gallon Zip Lock Bag

Place all ingredients except the Crackers in the Zip Lock Bag.
Seal it.
Shake the bag to mix all of the ingredients well.

Place the Crackers in the bag, seal it , turn it several times to mix up the ingredients and soak the crackers.
Store the bag flat overnight, turning it when you think of it.
When the Crackers are done, store them in a large jar.

peace in the Kitchen!
