Cajun Fire Crackers Recipe


Whut? No casserole or yummy comfort food smothered in melted cheese this week? That's right -- today you're getting a great snack food recipe that's really good for holiday giving or eating, and is a good thing just to have around when the munchies come calling.

You may even have had similar snackage before, but made with those little round oyster crackers. Well, here in the South, we do everything BIG, so here's an updated version of the old tiny snack of yore:

Cajun Fire Crackers
1 Box Saltine crackers
1 1/3 Cups Canola oil
1 Package Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing (dry)
1 1/2 tsp. dill weed
2 Tbsp. Crushed red pepper flakes

Place entire carton of crackers in a one gallon plastic zipper bag. Mix all other ingredients together and pour mixture over crackers. Turn bag frequently until dry (liquid is absorbed into crackers). After a few hours of turning, you are done! Couldn't be easier, right? And look how fast they go -- the tin was full only a few weeks ago!

PS to all you Laff-a-lots from yesterday's post ~~ y'all are welcome to post this Donkey Bling to your blogs! --->

my blaahggg!

Does that really taste good? Because it sounds umm not.

What? no tabasco? Ohh, I wonder if you shook them up, and then baked them? They'd be extra crunchy...!

Mornin' Angie!

Sounds like a great snack. I'll try it this weekend.

Anita said...

Cool! And the "few hours" of turning also counts as exercise.

We're still snacking on Super Bowl food, here.

aww man! I missed out on the tickling of yesterday. Too bad, I have a story too. Oh well, I'll just have to munch on the crackers and save it for next time. :)

Mmmm.... sounds good.
The whole carton? Really? Like all four packages? Just want to make sure.

Sounds tasty, and well within the realm of my cooking skills! I just bought a box of "Macaroni and Cheese" crackers--I bet they would be awesome if I "firecrackered" them up.

WARNING: These are addictive. And they make my feet disappear. Guess the whole thing was a little much.
These really are good. No Tabasco needed, just stump your toe when adding the red pepper flakes. Colby, which way are you looking on the pasta dish? I have learned to cook halfway decent being married to an educator.

OMG! These are so GOOD! My cube-mate made them, although he called them "Hillbilly Crackers". By any name, I will be making some myself! Who knew saltine crackers could be so versatile!
