Fire Crackers

A couple of months ago, my coworker told me that someone had brought this cracker mix to work, a spicy but delicious snack.  From the time I tried a few, I was hooked.  They were tasty and addictive!  So of course I had to get the recipe to make my own.



Since then, I've made these crackers a few times.  I've decided to share them here, because they're AWESOME.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup canola (flavorless) oil
  • 1 packet of Zesty Italian dressing mix (I use Good Seasons)
  • 1 packet of Ranch dressing mix (I use store brand)
  • 2-3 Tbsp. red pepper flakes (based on your preferred level of spice)
  • 1 box of White Cheddar Cheez-Its
  • 1 box/bag of another cracker, I have used plain mini Club crackers, pita chips, Ritz chips, etc.  This is for some flavor and shape variety, so you can pick what you think will work best!




Preparation:
Mix the oil, dressing mix, and red pepper flakes until they look like a dressing.  Pour them over the two packages of crackers (I've done this in a gallon-sized Ziploc or a large Pyrex bowl) and mix.  Mix every 15 minutes for 1 hour, then place in refrigerator overnight.  Put into resealable container/bowl to serve as a great party snack!  We keep it on the kitchen counter until it's devoured.




I know it's not healthy.  But these are sooooooo tasty.  The White Cheddar Cheez-its are my favorite in the mix, but I like how it looks with another cracker mixed in.  It's rare that I try something and get a recipe for it, then make it THREE times in the span of a month.  I just can't get enough!  They're a little hot, but I dig it.




Do you have a favorite snack mix recipe?
