I made these "fire" crackers for our Independence Day picnic. They were delicious and a bit addicting. You can add as much or as little of the hot pepper flakes as you prefer. I like them nice and spicy!
1 cup canola oil
1 pkg ranch dressing mix
2 - 3 TBS red pepper flakes
3-4 sleeves of saltine crackers
Mix the oil, ranch dressing mix and pepper flakes together in a mixing bowl. Add the crackers and gently toss for about 5 minutes to get them thoroughly coated.
Place crackers on a cookie sheet and drizzle any of the remaining spice mix over the crackers. Bake at 250 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Toss about halfway through. Let them cool and then store in a bag. These crackers taste great alone or with some cheese slices!
